    Coker is harmless, he doesnt want to be a threat just a retirement league.
    Rory and Bader are on the twilight of their careers, they have 2 years top before they get upset by some bum.
    Bellator should have gone for Larkin or Cirkunov but they wont, they rather get the "name" guys even if that strategy has failed over and over again.

    WME strategy makes sense, fighters that want to fight out their contract are a pain, they're showing they will cut anyone, which Zuffa never did, this gives them a lot more leverage.

    True, I think most of the champions are bigger names and they have stated they are looking at promoting bigger fight cards rather then a huge number of fight cards and are more interested in these big PPV fights, not always the fights the most sense! And no union will be allowed to determine how the UFC builds or promotes cards, because then the unions would have the power on how the UFC grows d promotes there own business. This is one reason why a union te way most of us know them wont work with a sport that is a promotion business. If a union is involved in the future I will look much different than what you see in pro sports.

    A union would not allow an organization to publicly disclose the state of internal contract negotiations so that the fighter involved would receive a contract $10,000+ lower from a competitor.

    Coker is the mma version of a tech startup. He is involved with organizations so that they may one day be purchased at massive profit by the UFC, who is still functioning as Microsoft without any real competitors. Bellator will eventually be purchased by the UFC.
