    Pat Curran, Michael Chandler, Alvarez, Askren, they are all very solid guys. I think most of the talent at Bellator is under 170 lbs and just doesn't get that much attention.

    I always liked Bellator, I hope they do well but trying to compete with the UFC seems like a stupid idea. They had their own thing going on and doing pretty well.

    Does Dana solely run the UFC/Zuffa? No.

    Do I think Bjorn Rebney solely runs Bellator? No.

    Dana White Tells Bellator to Pay Eddie Alvarez What He’s Worth
    Dana White Tells Bellator to Pay Eddie Alvarez What He's Worth | MMAWeekly.com
    Dana White discussed the Alvarez situation with the media following UFC on Fuel TV 7 on Feb. 16.

    “(Bellator) have the right to Eddie Alvarez,” said White. “He did his deal, but if you look at the way that this thing goes down, Eddie Alvarez paid his dues there. He honored his deal. He honored his contract with them. When your contract is up and you have the right to match, that’s where a fighter truly finds out what he is worth. Well, he found out what he was worth, now pay him the money.”

    Bellator MMA is owned by Viacom, and White claims Viacom is running the promotion and not Bellator president Bjorn Rebney.

    “Viacom is running that company,” said White.

    “They’re Viacom, one of the most powerful media companies on Earth. What is the number they sit on, 5.5 billion in cash? 5.5 billion in cash, break some off for Eddie (expletive) Alvarez and pay him what he deserves.”

    dana referring to someone as pompous and arrogant was much more amusing than his hackneyed schtick of getting their name wrong. that's getting old, like rampage's terrible "bref" jokes. But the pompous thing? Comedy gold.
