But with no 135-pound tournament winner waiting in the wings, Dantas (15-3 MMA, 5-0 BFC) is stuck in purgatory unless the promotion books him for a stay-busy non-title fight...

Not exactly a jackpot, but it's a start. Then again, once you factor in taxes and management and the cost of your own training camp just to get to this point, you might be lucky if you have enough left over to get you to the next fight...
