From listening to both sides of this I think it comes down to Bellator willing to "Match" the terms of the agreement but them having vastly different pay outs. Bellator can say we will give you a % of our TV revenue per show you fight on but that would be chump change compared to the same % of a UFC on Fox show. They can say we will have a PPV but everyone knows even if they did it would do way less than the UFC considering Affliction with stacked cards could only do about a third of what a shite UFC card does.

Bellator can "match" some terms without having nearly the monetary pay off.
