Vitor Belfort "asks for forgiveness" for the way he handled a question about TRT at the UFC on FX 8 post-fight press conference. He had asked twice for a reporter to be "beat up" for asking the question.
Former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez asserted on Monday's The MMA Hour he was initially sent an early release letter from Bellator that tried to change the language of their agreement whereby Bellator would only have to match UFC's 'material' offer. Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney challenged Alvarez's claims on Friday. Sunday Alvarez publishes what appears to be the letter he referenced on Monday.
Former UFC veteran Leonard Garcia is headed to Legacy Fighting. He will face Rey Trujillo at Legacy FC 21 on July 19th in Houston.
