    Minakov: Contract dispute with Bellator delaying UFC debut

    By Karim Zidan @ZidanSports Sep 15, 2016, 12:00p

    As far as Vitaly Minakov is concerned, he would already be fighting for the UFC had Bellator not interfered.

    BloodyElbow's Karim Zidan confirmed that Minakov will likely transition to the UFC in 2017. Speaking to Russian outlet izvestia.ru, the former heavyweight champion revealed that this was indeed likely to be the case, though he was uncertain when the move would occur because of Bellator's "strange" behaviour.

    "I had signed a contract with [Bellator], not based on the number of matches, but for a certain period of three years," said Minakov. "The three years have elapsed but the conditions if you are the champions of the organization, and I was to them, is that they have the right to extend once for six months and twice for three months. And they did.

    God dammit Bellator the UFC basically gave you Chael Sonnen so you can give up Vitaly Minakov!!!

    Minakov is a guy who i would think who could basically take one Fight and then go straight into the top 15 might even just go straight into the top 15 or top 10 depending on what the UFC pay him

    This is the side of the "sport" I really hate
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    The bright side, it sounds like it's just a matter of time before Minakov is a UFC fighter now.

    Would you automatically toss him into the top 15 if he Signed?

    Hell yeah, I'm not sure if he's still top 15, but Roy Nelson would be perfect, an easy win over a decent name......but even going Arlovski would be perfect.
