Lets not forget the truck derby, leave a big fight to make a movie, and always bad mouthing his employer while under contract. Now how many of those does Eddie Alvarez have 0 Eddie didn't say anything until after the UFC made a offer Belator couldn't match and refused to release him all the while he had no fights left on his contract. The only thing they have in common is there MMA fighters

    Get a lawyer in here, moreso a contract lawyer. Not EVERY point of this he-said she-said bullshit but saying that the UFC will give him a % of PPVs and Bellator saying that they will also if/when he rematches Chandler on PPV IS MATCHING...What if the UFC doesn't put him on a PPV...EVER? lol com'n man, they matched. Eddie also isn't squeaky clean, either. His story flip flopped more times than I can count.

    Also, I think in regards to the A-Team movie that Jackson did, that was around the time that he was supposed to fight Rashad after doing the TUF season yet decided to do the movie instead. I'm sure that had something to do with why Rampage was treated the way he was.

    Moral of this story; Read the entire contract before you sign, not just the dollar value.

    Bellator had 30 days to match the UFC offer. They feel they have, the UFC offered PPV cuts, which can't really be calculated, thus they feel that the offer can't be matched.

    It's not so much Rebney himself as Viacom who is pulling the strings here.

    As I understand it, if it's unresolved for 15 months [would be Feb of 2014] Alvarez is free and clear, per the original terms of his contract.

    They have.

    MMA is a business, and as in most sports industries, the promoters/owners hold more power than the actual talent.

    Can anyone back up his claim people are calling using Belator's name?
