He'd mostly just be buying back guys he's already cut from the roster. Couple good guys but mostly rejects.
Chances are most of the fighters the UFC would want from BFC will join the UFC when they have a chance anyway.
What about Schlemenko? He may not be the best fighter but he is very exciting and he is on a 11 win streak. He is 26-2 in his last 28 bouts.
Not only brazilians can do this stuff
UFC boss says Bellator fighters 'screwed' when it comes to testing free agencyhttp://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/09/ufc-boss-s
"The way that they do their deals, their guys are screwed," White said at a Sunday media event in Brazil. "Those guys can't go out and test the fair market. They can't do anything."
Askren (12-0 MMA, 9-0 BMMA), of course, is a four-time Division I All-American wrestler who transitioned to MMA in 2009. After three first-round stoppages on the regional scene, Askren signed with Bellator and earned the company's welterweight belt just six months after his promotional debut. He's since defended the belt four times but became a free agent after his July win over Andrey Koreshkov.
Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney has thus far declined to offer a new deal to his welterweight champ but has encouraged Askren to seek an offer from the UFC, at which time Bellator officials could weigh their option to match the deal.
White has expressed some interest in at least exploring the possibility of bringing Askren to the UFC, but he's understandably a bit gun shy after an attempt to bring then-free agent Alvarez proved fruitless when the threat of extensive litigation led the lightweight to decide a return to Bellator was in his best interest.
For his part, Askren has thus far said he's fine with whatever happens next, even going so far as to tell MMAjunkie.com he'd be content if he never fights again.
White won't reveal just how far he plans on pushing for Askren, but that's not stopping him from commenting on his thoughts of Bellator's business methods.
"Anybody who would sign a contract with them is insane," White said.
