    Didn't he get on an $80,000 contract right away? Surprised to hear him saying this, got a source? That's more than guys like Jim Miller make (which is pretty sad)

    WME is giving Bellator a window to grow. Zuffa wouldn't let go of so many big names.

    Lower profile fighters can make more money in Bellator off of sponsorships.

    The least they can do is pay the future GOAT of MMA 100K.

    It's chump change compared to what Lord Dillon Danis brings to the table.

    Well, they got shit deals in the UFC, Sage got "big" money from the start.

    Edit: Rory did, but Machida i think was making OK money in the UFC and switched to Bellator cause he "gave his word" to Coker i believe.

    Bellator is terrible for Sage in the long run. He no doubt will lose to some of the bums there and then his image will crumble and won't be getging ufc money, he won't have a future in ufc with a spotty record.

    Going to bellator is the worst thing he can do for himself, so if he is a creedy boi, let him suffer.

    Safe prbably should’ve started out in bellator anyway. He could be a force in the ufc in a few years

    If it means getting money then go do it but Coker's Bellator has been odd to say the least. Sort of existing between legit and a freak show. Pointless tournaments, countless rematches, and fading or inactive veterans. The bringing in UFC guys is what is keeping them afloat right now.

    It wasnt money why Machida signed with Bellator, he even said the UFC's offered contract was larger.
