It’s no secret that new Bellator Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez was involved in a contract dispute with Bellator that involved the UFC. When Alvarez picked up the split decision win over former champion Michael Chandler in Long Beach, California, UFC President Dana White took to twitter to take a shot at Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney.
White said via twitter:
“I’m hearing Djork oops Bjork got served a big fat plate of karma tonight. Congrats Eddie!”
Rebney responded via MMAFighting:
“You know what, I’ve kind of picked my spots where I thought it was necessary to respond. Some of his valuation comments were ridiculous given that his partner [FOX] paid us tens of millions of dollar for our rights in America and some of the other things.”
“I don’t know what karma is. If karma is that we just put on the best mixed martial arts fight I’ve ever seen, that’s karma I’ll take big boatloads of.”
