They made a competing offer, which they had 90 days to make, they made it. Why can't Alvarez just wait out the rest of the 90 days and sign with the UFC? I just don't understand the legality in their bitching.
Yeah it almost sounds like the restricted free agents in other sports. Restricted free agents the current team has a chance to match the offer, unrestricted they can sign with whoever...just in case you weren't familiar with American pro sports
