    The more top talent, the better and I think Tumenov is talented.

    However, has a fighter ever been resigned by the UFC after leaving rather then getting released or the UFC not wanting them anymore?

    Sign him immediately, I think he beats just about everyone apart from Yaroslav and maybe some of the wrestlers can give him issues, even though his TDD is better than it used to be.

    He is better suited for Bellator's WW division, which is full of strikers, as opposed to grapplers like in the UFC. Still, dont put it past Bellator to match him up against Berkhamov, Storley, and every other wrestler they can find.

    Also, if they can get a package deal for the Tumenov cousins that would be a slam dunk.

    AFAIK Bibert is still under contract with ACA for now.

    Krylov? I think Taisumov tested free agency before signing last contract.

    Why would Bellator not sign him?

    Might feel like they have enough Russians. They absolutely should though, he's totally right and I agree with him entirely. The UFC and Bellator should both be trying to secure him right now and the fact they aren't makes me sad.

    He has been going for the UFC deal for a year now, just recently has he also started talking about Bellator

    He seems to be wanting to go in this direction. Hopefully Coker makes it happen.

    I've seen parts on new interview with him -- Bellator offered to sign him a couple of times but he turned them down because he was waiting for UFC.

    That's what I expected. Bellator would be stupid to not try to sign him. Honestly the biggest issue with any promotion outside of the UFC getting prospects is that the UFC is the big show for many

    Lets hope Coker doesnt hold a grudge like Dana does because if he does, then Tumenov will be stuck forever.
