Gegard M. Airs His Greivances Against UFC as a New Part of Bellator’s Family

Slowly but surely, Bellator has been gathering huge talent from the UFC

It started as just a couple here and there, but Roy Nelson marks the 16th former UFC fighter that Bellator has gathered…

“I WAS A SMALL FISH IN THE UFC. I’M A BIG FISH IN BELLATOR. THAT’S WHY I WANT TO DO MY PART TO GROW WITH BELLATOR. THERE’S A CONNECTION THAT I DON’T HAVE WITH UFC. IT’S A COMPANY, LIKE A FACTORY. WITH BELLATOR, IT’S MORE THAT I’M PART OF THE FAMILY, AND I’M DOING THE BEST I CAN TO GROW WITH THE FAMILY. IF I WAS TO CRITICIZE [THE UFC], I THINK THE FAIRNESS OF PAYMENT OR THE FAIRNESS OF GETTING A TITLE SHOT, IT’S TOO MUCH ABOUT THE NAME OF THE FIGHTER AND WHO THEY FEEL THEY CAN BUILD AS A STAR AS OPPOSED TO WHO IS THE BEST FIGHTER.”
