Maybe its even more clever than that...Maybe Dana knows that Bellator wouild be interested in him and he also knows that Fitch will beat anyone in Bellator with the possible exception of Askren (who is equally unintertaining) and he is trying to harpoon them with a boring fighter...Tinfoil hat is going on...
