OK so maybe this is a Bellator story but the implications to the UFC are huge.
Two things Kimbo gets a 90 day rip in Texas for Nandrolone and elevated Testosterone after he gives Dada a heart attack. And Bellator signs him to a new fight ... in 90 days not even one day suspension!
As well the UFC fights for years to get into NY, pays millions in lobbying efforts and Bellator slides in right behind them saying "Woot we get to fight in NY too."

Now ok, Bellator makes its cash using washed up UFC fighters... cool, ... ignore efforts to clean PEDs out of MMA.... ok. But on top of it all sliding in behind the UFC opening up the market?  Kinda low class on Coker and Bellators part.... but Meh! business is business.  Quick sign Henderson to seal the rep. (Not little Henderson, they already got him... the old cheating douche-bag one.)

What do ya'll think?

no big deal about bellator doing events in ny....I don't think the ufc/zuffa sees it that way either....im sure other orgs will make it to ny as well.....this wasn't a move for the ufc specifically but for the sport of mma and everybody will reap the benefits.....it could be said that the ufc opened several markets up only to be followed buy the little guy and I don't think anybody was left sitting there scratching their heads saying "what the fuck? the nerve of this other company to practice business where we did....dang we sure didn't see this coming....what on earth just happened?"

Yeah I agree with matt, them holding an event in NY is not surprising or sneaky in any way. MMA was legalized in NY, not just the UFC. I don't think the UFC expected other orgs to stay out of NY because it's "UFC territory" or something just because they did the most lobbying to get MMA legalized.

As far as Kimbo getting another fight so soon, is it extremely bush league and a very Bellator-ish move to make? Absolutely. Is it a slap in the face to the UFC somehow? I don't really see how there's any correlation there whatsoever. It's unrelated to the UFC completely.

It's absolutely a slap in the face to MMA as a whole and to every effort made to legitimize the sport and have it be taken seriously, but that's nothing new for Bellator. Pretty much everything they do is the opposite of legitmizing MMA.

is it the fight promotion that hands down the suspension or the athletic commission? if it is the AC then why would it have anything to do with Bellator signing what is a big fight for them? Bellator shouldn't be blamed if Kimbo Slice only got handed a minimal suspension..

did I understand this correctly or am I completely off the ball?

Yeah, I am pretty sure the UFC even mentioned Belator and the rest during the NY negotiations. Something along the lines of all of MMA will benefit from their driving legalization in NY.  Not a slap in the face imo.
