This comes only a few days after Bendo tweeted his displeasure at learning that the UFC offered former Bellator LW champ Eddie Alvarez was offered $70K to show and $70 to win per fight with incremental increases for each win plus a $250,000 signing bonus and a % of pay-pre-view revenue should he fight on a UFC PPV:

Just another case of competition being good for fighters.
