UFC president Dana White doesn’t hold it against Gilbert Melendez for going to Bellator to field an offer and find out his worth on the open market. Although he believes that if Melendez ends up signing a deal with the Viacom-owned promotion, it will be the last place he ever fights in his mixed martial arts career.
“If he [expletive] signs a deal with those guys, he ain’t going anywhere,” said White during a media scrum on Thursday. “Nobody can get out of those [expletive] deals they have. And Viacom will [expletive] sue you until you [expletive] bleed.
“Everyone wants to talk about the UFC, like we’re bullies, whatever. They’re the [expletive] bullies over there. And they’ve got these contracts that you cannot get out of.”
