    gilbert is coming off an injury, when eddie fell out who has been sitting and ready, they went to gilbert. gilbert has the fan base in cali, easy to see why they booked gil-ben in cali. has nothing to do with ben, who isnt a proven draw as of yet

    It's nice to see someone admit when they are wrong. It takes a real man to do that, and I am not trying to be sarcastic or funny, as I had nothing to do with this debate.
    Some people would just not reply, but you manned up and said you were wrong. Kudos. I hope nobody tries to rub it in your face.

    Not me. I'm wrong all the time and willing to admit that.

    bulldong, i just checked the silva vs weidman thread and you did get the correct person but either missed the point or you are very proud of your choice of sig bet punishments.

    i said you were the worst thing to happen to the boards, because i hate your sig bet punishments. i did not think i was homophobic, but the last few sigs you dished out made me cringe everytime i checked the boards. you need to lighten up.

    hmmm didn't see that...

    i wonder if that settlement includes not accepting the extension and just finishing his last year in bellator or if he accepted the extension deal?

    newest update

    Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) entered the Eddie Alvarez sweepstakes last year after the former Bellator Lightweight Champion finished off Patricky Freire in Ontario. His win over "Pitbull" pushed his record to 24-3 with 21 finishes.

    He would have made a great addition to the ranks of UFC.

    Unfortunately for Alvarez, his former employer had a right to match the offer, and did, but there was a rapid breakdown in negotiations when it came to dollars and cents. Alvarez wanted the dollars, and a career in Bellator didn't make any sense.

    How can a promotion with no pay-per-view (PPV) business model match an incoming offer that guarantees a cut of the PPV buys? According to Alvarez, it can't, which is why he took Bellator to court to free himself from what Bjorn Rebney, Bellator CEO, called a "key misunderstanding."

    In fact, Rebney says his matching offer was so close to ZUFFA's, all he did was erase the name "UFC" from the physical contract and replace it with "Bellator," making it an exact copy, "dollar for dollar." See him explain the process here.

    With that in mind, attorneys for Bellator filed a motion in U.S. District Court to take Eddie's claims of 'tortious interference and breach of contract' and toss them out the window.

    Judge Jose L. Linares responds (via SI.com):

    "In deciding the instant motion to dismiss, this Court must accept allegations in Alvarez's counterclaim as true. Accepting the validity of Bellator's argument would require this Court to make a factual determination that Bellator, in fact, had a legitimate business-related justification for proposing a contract to Alvarez purporting to match the Zuffa offer. It would be inappropriate for this Court to make a factual determination at this stage."

    Too soon.

    Alvarez had a few motions of his own denied, after seeking an injunction that would let him compete at UFC 159 later this month in New Jersey.because he "failed to satisfy his burden of showing (1) a reasonable probability of success on the merits and (2) irreparable harm."

    See how that went down here.

    While the legal battle continues, both sides continue to negotiate a settlement out of court, too. Until then, Alvarez can do nothing but wait, which at age 29 and in the prime of his career, is likely the last thing he wants to be doing.

    Stay tuned.

    That blurb does a poor job of explaining it.

    Go to SI.com for a better explanation.
    Basically, Eddie's biggest argument was contested by Bellator, but the judged ruled in favour of Eddie's case, thus making this a much more competitive court battle.

    Things are getting dirty.
