With Bellator's Rebney 'not interested in callouts,' WSOF VP calls him a 'candyass'

USA TODAY Sports

After WSOF challenged Bellator to a "winner-take-all" pay-per-view, Bellator's Bjorn Rebney mostly ignored them. Now, World Series of Fighting execs are taking to twitter to call out the Bellator CEO.

When World Series of Fighting issued a "winner take all" pay-per-view challenge to Bellator, it didn't seem that much would come of it. A battle of a B and C-tier MMA promotions isn't likely to make much money, faces complications of revenue splitting, faces complications from both promotions having existing TV deals with rival networks...and so on.

Bellator is also clearly the "bigger" promotion at this point and has next to nothing to gain in the proposed battle. Hell, two of the four fighters WSOF has crowned as champions fought in Bellator (Steve Carl and Georgi Karakhanyan), each going 2-2 in the promotion.

So, with Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney basically dismissing WSOF's nonsense and talking about bigger issues in MMA, like the war of words between Georges St. Pierre and the UFC, WSOF matchmaker and executive VP Ali Abdelaziz took to twitter to fire more shots in the little war that couldn't:

On yesterday's Bellator conference call, Rebney simply stated that he isn't interested in callouts, probably the smartest move.
