If fedor gets hurt and can no longer fight or will be off for an extended period of time then im sure that Gegard can fight without. If Gegard wants to fight more then he is more than welcome to fight against other orgs and even other sports.
This deal is far less restrictive than UFC's where they can only fight against UFC fighters.
Dont fool yourself kid, no deal is ever sunshine and lillipops. Name me one fighter with a S&L contract, there is always some disadvantages and advantages but as far as I can tell Gegard's contract is pretty good.
