Is everyone forgetting that the UFC sued Randy Couture when he tried to fight Fedor?

You break your contract and you get sued.

I'm tentatively agreeing with this.

Bellator can't be suing for nothing. The truth will come out. Just give it some time

Randy was still under contract. He still had fights on said contract. He was far from a free agent. Randy tried to claim he was retired then wanted to fight Fedor while he was retired. Alvarez has completed his contract but yet Bellator is sueing because they think they have matched the UFC contract well enough that Alvarez has to stay with them because of a clause in said contract. When truth is they can never really match the UFC contract unless they start doing PPVs and pulling in millions of buys.

He's a crybaby who doesn't want to honor his contract.
