I get that. But..., but the restricted free agent argument doesn't fit. There is no collective bargaining agreement, hence there is no exclusive negotiating, not legally. If Bellator and the UFC were different teams in the same league, I'd understand. The simple fact that there is no league that all the organizations belong to means that they can't restrict free agency. At least, I don't see how they could.
