Problem with Bellator is the guys who are ready to take the next step are locked into a champion clause they are too talented to get out of. I can definitely see people throwing fights eventually to escape that meagre organization.
the problem with throwing fights is that not only you ruin your rep, you also get an L on your record and dana said "we dont sign fighters coming off losses" or some shit like that.
also i dont think their clause is similar to ufc clause that you cannot leave without losing the title like in the ufc, because this way nobody would sign it. if they did, they deserve to be stuck.
