His suspension from Pennsylvania is over. But he isn't the right fit for Bellator, according to Bjorn Rebney.

"The reality is that it's not often that a top-10 guy is available ... especially when he's coming off a win," Rebney said. "Nate's situation was pretty unique. It's an anomaly for a guy like that to become available, so we had discussions. But it just became pretty clear it wasn't the right fit."

I have no idea what the right fit means. Money? Didn't want the incredibly long Bellator contract? Don't want to be dependant on his TRT getting approved? No clue.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.
