I know it's about pride and what's right, but a man has to make a living.
I think he had it written into his contract that he had to stay if Bellator could match any potential contract.

So they matched his UFC offer, but of course just the financial side of it. He's arguing that the UFC is the better offer because of the exposure they bring, more sponsorship money, potential bonuses and possibility for an even better contract at some point down the line.

But legally he can't leave because Bellator have 'matched' the UFC's offer.
