With Diaz-Bendo, Showtime-Cowboy and Aldo-Edgar booked up, I don't see them putting Eddie vs someone like Wiman, Miller or Johnson.
Winner of Maynard/Lauzon? That's if they wanna throw him in right away with the big dogs, which he's certainly capable of hanging with, but I wouldn't do that. Personally, I would start him out slow and give him a showcase fight after that indescribable garbage Lombard showed us in his debut. I'd take no chance in having another big signing from Bellator come in and look like absolute garbage.

Either way, if the UFC puts in PPV money, and he accepts Bellator has no possible way of matching that since they don't do PPV.
