Eddie isn't getting an immediate title shot. It confused me that they were going to give Ed one and not Gil. Now Gil gets the shot instead.

I know these figures involve 'big if's'

But lets assume Eddie fights on a massive card that pulls 1,000,000 buyers.

70,000 to show
210,000 to win (assuming he has accumulated this figure)
200,000 (for 200 - 400,00. buys at $1 pb)
400,000 (for 400 - 600,000 buys at $2 pb)
1,000,000 (for 600,000 - 1,000,000 buys at $2.50 pb)
65,000 (assuming he gets fight of the night, based on last cards payouts)
65,000 (assuming he gets KO or Sub of the night, based on last cards payouts)
--------------------------------
2,010,000 (total earnings)

I know that figure is based on a lot of 'what if's' but it just shows the potential earning power of being in the UFC.

Bellator, ain't matching that. Not a chance.

Yes, indeed. He usually gets rocked once or twice and returns the favor. Plus he was hilarious in Bully Beatdown. He put a whoopin' on the fat bully.

I don't understand why is anyone getting sued? UFC makes Eddie an offer. Bellator attempts to match it. Eddie doesn't like it. Bellator Sues Eddie? WTF why? Not allowed to say no?

Because Eddies contract with bellator has a matching clause were if they match for. A certain amount of time he has. To sign with them.
