Attila Vegh tells MMA Poland that he's totally healthy and that Bellator asked him to sit out so they could do the Emanuel Newton/King Mo rematch on the Bellator PPV.

Don't bite the hand that feeds you, esp when you're not good enough to go to a bigger hand.

Bet the UFC did the same thing with Henderson/Grant/Pettis.

Possibly but if they did they paid Grant well enough that he didn't feel the need to spill about it and make them look bush league.

Viacom and Bellator have too much invested in King Mo to not give him the title shot on PPV. Like it or not Viacom has tied the success of Bellator to King Mo.

They feature him on everything to do with the company. They even use him on other SPIKE shows to promote Bellator.
