Bellator likes suing people too

Apparently, the UFC is not the only promotion out there that specializes in suing people, countersuing people, suing to collect legal fees that it lost in the course of lawsuits, and aiming at people before shooting lawyers out of cannons. Bellator is also following this fine example, which the UFC set by suing former partners, video game companies, bar owners, its own fighters, and cute doggies who get into no-nos, by taking some nice, cold, prickly legal action of its own. The two lawsuit-loving promotions previously sued each other, with the UFC alleging that Bellator stole its trade secrets and Bellator alleging that the UFC interfered with the clown-wigged Jonathan Brookins’ Bellator contract. Now Bellator is suing Desert Rage Full Contact Fighting and its promoter, Chance Farrar, for allegedly attempting to interfere with the Bellator show scheduled to happen in Arizona on October 22.

Evidently, Desert Rage is trying to counterpromote on the same night as Bellator and is telling people that the Bellator show was cancelled in order to steal local fighters. But the remedy Bellator proposes is more extreme than anything attempted by even the UFC: they are trying to get a restraining order preventing Desert Rage from even having a show. I suppose it’s nice to see that the UFC isn’t the only promotion that can try to wipe out shows one rung below them. After all, everybody likes a chance to be that 800lb gorilla that makes the other guy poop his pants. Bellator is probably trying to assuage its anxiety over the fact that the UFC will soon try to make them die by rectal impaling, but any way you stack it, we all know that two wrongs do in fact make a right and that fighting solves everything.

However, it would be nice to see some solidarity between these sub-Zuffa promoters, because fighters such as Ed West have cobbled together careers fighting for both promotions when they may not have been able to make a living off of just one of them. This may be a case of “we were (or are about to be) beaten up by our big brother, so now we’re going to beat up on you” syndrome on both sides, and so we can probably expect more of it in the future. For the upcoming lawsuit “Everyone vs. Everyone”, soon to be filed by every MMA promotion against every other MMA promotion, we cannot predict a winner, but no matter what the outcome, the public schools are sure to lose a whopping $30 million.

    From a non haters point of view, all those links and thick paragraphs made me skip right to the comments, knowing there would be photoshops.

  • Grappo

    I use a lot of links too, but out of necessity.  The Cannon Lawyer, Toilet Dog, and the Fighting Solves Everything linkage seemed a little bit overkill lmao

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Did Subes really show up to insult another writer, or is he being facetious?

  • frickshun

    Sounded facetious. Or he is using dick to make himself the SECOND least liked writer.

  • Danjo

    Apparently,

    Evidently,

    However.

    keyboard warrior- Sorry to make you read 424 words… it’s taxing to the best of us, I know.

    grappo- The dog drining from the toilet is a picture my mom took of her dog. We’re very proud of him. The cannon lawyer was something someone posted in the comments to my first article about lawyers. And fuck you, fighting solves everything makes cool t-shirts (which I wouldn’t be caught dead in). Part of this was me realizing, shit, i DO use a lot of links, and then hamming it up further.

    Iamphoenix- where can I get a lab coat like that? or do I have to make it myself? I will be the envy of all the other nerds when I rock that shit. Also, you were so kind to explain to people how to post pictures in comments the other day. You’ll spawn many imitators and gain much admiration. And also, in all seriousness thanks for serving your country, I admire you for that.

  • KeyboardWarrior

    apology accepted my good man

  • Danjo

    The only thing Penis ever did for his country was rob a liquor store.

  • frickshun

    ^^Not true. He also fucked a Korean chick SO THE REST OF US WOULDN’T HAVE TO!!

  • Danjo

    Touche’, you beautiful bastard.

  • Grappo

    Part of this was me realizing, shit, i DO use a lot of links, and then hamming it up further.

     

    I honestly hoped this was the case.

  • dick

    Never had a Korean chick, but I’ve had many Asians and they definitely have the best pussies that humankind has to offer. And Koreans have the best T&A of any Asian chicks. So if you don’t want ‘em, send me all you’ve got!

  • FiveBoltMain

  • SST

  • iamphoenix

  • CAP

    I saw SpikeTV advertising the Bellator event for MTV2. It’s definitely a done deal, or is it official Bellator is moving to Spike? Dick.

    Fighters Union is a great idea and Couture campaigned for it when he left the UFC in 07. But in rteliay, since the UFC is a private company and all major orgs should be counceling with the appointed spokesmen of the fighters, it makes no sense for them. They simply have a firm grasp of their fighters balls. And yea, Leben and Murray are the biggest shit talkers Anderson has faced, and they went straight to the hospital after Silva put a clinic on them(Murray for leg injury, Leben concussion)
