BELLASHIT MMA

Sign Jonathan Brookins, dont give him a fight, he gets a fight somewhere else, loses and then gets released from bellator.  Brookins goes on to win some fights and gets a spot on tuf and bellashit MMA sues him.

Sign Tyson Nam... keep him on the bench for months and months. never give him a fight, release him.  He goes out and finds a fight on his own and wins ironically against Dantas and Bellashit MMA sues him...

Signs Roger Hollet... poor hollet finds himself in Bellashit MMA legal pergatory.

Signs Paul Daley... Paul cant get a visa, Bellashit MMA sues him.

Signs Dave Herman... Herman finds himself in Bellashit pergatory.

They sign Eddie Alvarez... Eddie fulfills all his obligations and submits an offer for them to match.  Bellashit MMA cant match it so they pretend to match it in order to sue him and keep him from working and feeding his family..

I feel sorry for what King Mo, Mike Chandler, Pat Curran, and the rest of the guys are gonna have to go through.

Gentleman, I Present:

BELLASHIT MMA

Fack. I feel like someone sh*t in my cereal. Edited for not knowing all the facts. I'm a real big fan and hope everything works out for all parties involved.

Yeah their business tactics seem petty and ridiculous. I'm done with them.

brought to you by the genius behind Shitfarce

If you change the name of a promotion to a negative soundbyte, you automatically out yourself as an idiot of the highest caliber.

The UFC has taken some litigious stances in the past in the name of business competition that have hurt fans and fighters, but I don't remember people renaming their moniker to UFSHIT.

Mainly because they'd be morons.

^ only a moron could compare UFC's litigious stances to some of the examples above...

Attack dog engaged

Has anybody heard Bellator's side of any of those cases? Has anybody here read these contracts? Was anybody here in the meeting with Alvarez and Bellator to see what they offered him?

I didn't think so. Perhaps you guys should wait to hear both sides before getting your labias twisted. Phone Post

What kind of legal stance do u think the UFC would have in this situation if they were #2 and Bellator was #1? Do u think the UFC would let guys do whatever they want or would they try to have guys hold up to their end of the bargain knowing that a show with deeper pockets is waiting to snatch their fighters up? I think Bellator is trying to get what the fighters have agreed to give them. Phone Post

What did he say? Phone Post

I watch Bellator for the great fights and fighters, not for Bjorn and contracts. Phone Post

Basically said they took the UFC contract and wrote Bellator on it, exact match, doesn't sound like there was a ppv cut which seems to be the sticking point

A 250k signing bonus and 70/70 each fight or something plus special shows on spike

Sounds like Lombard got the ppv cut and maybe Eddie might have that option eventually, I have no idea though, maybe that's were it gets weird

ZUffa had matching rights on arlovski... arlovski submitted the affliction offer and zuffa realized they werent gonna match it so they let him go.  Zuffa could have sent him a bogus offer claiming to "match" it and kept him on the sidelines to fuck with him and affliction but they didnt.

 

Zuffa was 40 million in the hole... #2 to prides #1.  And they never have done what bellator has tried to do to tyson nam, jonathan brookins or eddie alvarez.

Eddie said emphatically that if Bellator really matches the offer he'll sign with them.

Which legal case has bellator won?  They sue people just to fuck with them...

I would like to hear Bellator's side. Phone Post

"MMALOGIC" said Bellatorwpuld be out of business a year ago, so he is on full attack mode over this

Idk Nader. I realize you have fought for them before so you know firsthand that they treat fighters good. But some of there tactics just seem to downright screw a fighter for the good of Bellator. I don't agree with calling them bellashit though and I'd be happy to read about there side of the story. But at this point... It just doesn't seem right to me. Phone Post
