Since its inception, Bellator Fighting Championships has been a promotion that prided itself on building talent from within the organization and not picking up the scraps leftover from the UFC.

Now that’s not to say that Bellator hasn’t signed fighters after being released from the UFC – Ben Saunders, Paul Daley, and Maiquel Falcao are just a few of the former fighters that competed in the Octagon and received their walking papers before Bellator snatched them up.

Not many fighters will want to sign with Bellator after this whole Eddie Alvarez situation

Idk if Bellator has that contract matching option with all it's fighters though, seems like it's only with it's top fighters. Lombard, Alvarez.

I do think Bellator can't overlook signing some notable names, they need some star/drawing power with some recognizable names.

bellator, IMO, has more talent than SF right now. i dont think they need that many SF fighters.
