After former WEC Bantamweight Champion Chase Beebe pulled out of a scheduled fight at UWC: Man 'O War last month claiming an injury, it ultimately turned out to be an apparent case of Beebe pulling out to avoid getting hurt before his fight last weekend at DREAM 7. As a result, UWC owner/promoter S. Marcello Foran has issued a statement noting that UWC will be pursuing legal actions against Beebe to cover costs and contractual obligations among possibly other things.

i'd sue the man too, you can't do that crap and he probably cost uwc a lot of cash, and an organization like uwc probably needs all the cash they can get.

I hope they take this all the way. A contract is a contract and should be fulfilled no matter what.

Not true according to the law, but in this case I can see the contract being honored and Beebe being found in breach of that contract.

I heard that he didn't even realize that the DREAM fight was going to be in a ring and that the first round would be ten minutes!? He should have just kept it simple and fought in the UWC instead of holding out for fights overseas with alien rules and opponents with no experience who happen to be olympic-level wrestlers and naturals to the sport.
