Yeah I sort of have a theory that Bellator might not actually be trying to retain the rights of Alvarez but just sued him so that the contract became public, thus causing friction internally in the UFC at how much guys are being paid relatively.

I know that poaching him from Bellator is pricy, so it didn't surprise me that the contract was likely bigger than what the champ was making or guys like Gray Maynard and guys that are already proven commodities.
