I believe that the immediate title shot serves the purpose of making harder for Bellator to come up with a matching propose due to the large but still unknown income that Eddie would receive due to it.
It's pretty obvious Eddie doesn't qualify for a title shot and the UFC knows it!

Well Dana said this thing with bellator is going to be a mess. Maybe they expect it to take a while to finish and Eddie gets a title shot while a #1 contenders match takes place.

But more then likely it is just a bargaining tool that Bellator cannot match.

Between Eddie, Gilbert, and Pettis

Eddie Pitbull/Aoki/Curren
Melendez Thomson/Masvidal/Kawajiri
Pettis Cerrone(if it happens)/Lauzon/Stephens

While Alvarez may not be the best choice I do think his victories qualify him. Especially as both Pettis and Melendez are coming off injuries.

I guess a judge is going to have to decide if a cut of the PPV is legally something Bellator has to match.

Can anyone shed some light on applicable precedents?

It would be nice to have some idea of how this will play out based on previous rulings.

Eddie will win.WCW used to do contracts with weird terms like that to steal WWF guys but the length and cost of the battle Bellator hopes will force Eddie to have to resign because of the financial burden.

Isn't Viacon behind Bellator?
Those guys can inject some serious money to halp in this situation,
otherwise the UFC will always be using this tactic to "steal" bellator guys.
I imagine it's way cheaper than offering Lombard contracts.

He has huge knock out power, probably the most current devastating KO artist in any LW division and is an over all excellent grappler.

I for one can't wait to see Eddie prove his worth in the UFC and start KO'ing fools left and right.

Delusional Nut Hugger Alert.. pretty much everything you said here is false..

UFC is gonna feel pretty foolish when he gets KO'd and Wrestlefuked in his first 2 bouts..

I'm not as sold on Eddie as GrappleRetarded seems to be, but I could definitely see him being top 5. I love to watch him fight, so I hope he does well.

What was delusional about any of my post? Care to address the points I actually made, have you watched any of Eddie Alvarez' fights? How is what I said false? If you're going to make a point, at least have the decency to back it up with some thought out reasoning instead of responding immaturely.

I bet never in your wildest dreams did you envision Benson Henderson holding the UFC LW title either, because those WEC guys were a notch below the top dogs over here in the UFC, right?
