Good for him, I like him taking the Ben Saunders route.

Good for Kurt but bad for anyone hoping he'd make it back to the UFC.

Bellator is styled in such a way that its hard to move yourself to a better organization after fighting there. You either win a tournament and are locked into your deal through a champion's clause. Or you lose a fight in the tournament and have to go to an even smaller promotion to build up some wins.

Is there anyone of note from Bellator that has moved on to the UFC?
