    Thing is though, if he lost 50k, that means he was making 55k from sponsors before. Guarantee he'd be going down to 25-35k to go to Bellator, but if the salary difference is still less, it makes sense.

    Did he disclose how much money Bellator is paying him? I got a feeling he didn't take a huge pay cut Bellator pays there name guys well

    I wish Dana White would go away now, he was a big part in making the UFC into what it is but now he is stopping it from going any further

    But I feel like they wouldn't have had to do that QUITE as much for Thomson, as the UFC made it VERY obvious that they had no intention of pursuing him.

    Guys, lets not pretend this is all Dana's doing, the Fertitas and other board members will all be behind it too, Dana is just the focal point.

    Anyone else think the Fertitta's may one day toss him aside and use him as a scapegoat to the media for any/all bad business solutions? I have no doubt that he has much REAL power as far as decision-making goes, but being the face, it would be easy to bury him and "move forward" without him. But with their past being close friends, I dunno.
