    That's funny. You were trying to be funny, right?

    Man this story just pisses me off more and more, when are we going to see an organization feature not just the flashy fighting moves of Martial Arts, but the Pride and Honor aspect as well? I just gotta believe that there is an Org out there somewhere that can get this shit right.....

    The "legally matched" part of things is still very much up for debate at this point. Especially when Bjorn has already been caught in a lie about the supposed Bellator PPV.

    Bellator didn't develop Eddie. Eddie developed Bellator.

    If I were Eddie, I would just keep fucking with Bjorn until he gets sick of me and the negative pr.

    This was completely avoidable had they made a concession and booked Alvarez/Chandler II immediately after to try and appease their star, who was possibly looking for an out.... But all this jibberjabber about a PPV is a total crock of shit and Bjorn is making himself look bad the longer this goes on.

    I remember reading about the SEG/Mark Kerr lawsuit from the early days of the UFC and this feels quite similar in that, it is rooted in pettiness and is an utter waste of everyone's time and money.

    Bellator has to change their stance on title shots for former champions or they won't be able to keep any of their top fighters, they will continue to be just a feeder for the UFC. But come Rebney, this guy chased you down on a live interview to tell you how he feels. Just let him go, you don't want a guy that wants out that bad in your organization. It's stupid.

The Alvarez situation has already made me lose some respect for Bellator, but this take the fucking cake! I sincerely hope this is bullshit, because Bellator has a something special with their format. I hope Bellator comes to it's senses and lets Alvarez go, he isn't a fucking Anderson Silva, he's a very beatable fighter. Why waste the effort? Doesn't make a lick of fucking sense. Just build new superstars Like Micheal Chandler.....

    I wish they would just let Eddie be. That said Eddie signed a contract. Dana would do the same thing, IMO.
    My understanding is that they are willing to offer him an immediate title shot as they had to match the UFC Contract which was also giving him a title shot.

    Just found the article I was thinking of...

    Feel bad for the guy man. Eddie brings it every fight. Has done everything right by Bellator and just wants to move on and is getting fucked in the process. He's got so many great match ups in the UFC, and it'd be an utter disappointment if they never come to fruition.
