I think vinny should be back in the ufc
He's had an impressive run outside of the ufc. I still think he needs a lot of work on his striking though(Despite his latest win). He should try to get a few fights in Bellator before he heads to the ufc.
The problem with bellator is that if your successful and win tourneys and win a belt your kind of locked down with them. While if you lose then your stock just drops, at this point not a good idea for Vin since he's trying to get to the UFC. Maybe title fights with Shark fights or Pro elite would be better
People have it wrong when they think that Bellator is a good springboard to the UFC because of exactly what you said.
While they are in the tournament, they can't get out of the contract. If they win, they have to fight for the belt and can't get out of it. If they win that, then the Bellator has a champion's clause just like the UFC that makes it impossible to get out of the contract.
To get in the UFC, you need to rack up wins. If you rack up wins in Bellator, you can't sign with the UFC because of the contracts. Therefore, if the goal is to get in the UFC, don't sign with Bellator.
On the other hand, if the goal is to make money fighting, the perks of racking up wins in Bellator stack up pretty nicely compared to what the majority of fighters make in the UFC. The fighters fight more often, and the 100k bonus for winnin a tourney is pretty rich. Ask Pat Curran.
