Will Brooks just won the interim Bellator lightweight title, but he's the latest fighter to voice his frustration with the promotion and Bjorn Rebney.

That's an unfortunate situation to be in.

I agree since bjorn already said eddie has a match with chandler stipulation in his contract. Kinda weird spot for brooks.

Hmm, the main body of the tirade takes place just after 2:30A. No good decisions ever happen after 2:30A

Looks to me as if Brooks got home from the bar and went on a baby rant. From 2 am -3 am he made these tweets.
IMO not worth getting that upset over it. Eddie has it in his contract, enough said. Suck it up buttercup!! To top it off I dont think he won against Chandler anyways. Was a draw IMO.

Oh yeah, Rampage does. But then again, he always says the company he's in treats him better than his previous company, so take it with a grain of salt

That doesn't really sound anywhere near as bad as the title makes it sound. Even calling it a rant seems like an exaggeration. Brooks has some concerns and for the most part he calmly (at least compared to what we are used to seeing) explains his issues. Also, he seems to have a good attitude about the whole situation. Honestly, as far as fighters go, he comes off better on Twitter than just about anyone I've seen.
