Bjorn Rebney responds to Dana White's 'no value' Bellator slam
By Luke Thomas @SBNLukeThomas on Oct 2 2013, 7:02p

It may have been the case for years there was no war of words between UFC President Dana White and Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, those days are seemingly long since over.

During a recent press scrum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to promote the rematch between UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva, White was asked by the local media if he'd ever be interested in purchasing Bellator MMA.

"There's nothing there," White responded to the question. "If you look at any other company we ended up buying in the past, there was value. There's no value to that company whatsoever." White went on to explain other organizations the UFC's parent company in Zuffa  purchased also possessed video libraries he considered valuable.

In response to White's remarks, Rebney issued a statement to MMA Fighting, which reads as follows:

Quote :
It hasn't been my practice to respond to his ongoing focus on Bellator.  My focus is on the expansion of the Bellator brand worldwide and constantly creating a better more exciting, entertaining product for our fans.  But....when he lofts softballs like this over the plate, you just have to take a swing.  And, the facts here are that the UFC's Partners at FOX just made a multi-year commitment, worth tens of millions of dollars to the Bellator brand.  If that doesn't paint a clear picture on value, I don't know what would.
Must say, that was sharp and concise.

Love the "softball" remark while also pointing out the same people who saw value in partnering with the UFC in their biggest deal ever (FOX) are the same people who just saw value in BFC and made a deal with them to showcase internationally despite their parent company being a competing interest. Simple short response that made White sound dumb while not even touching the low hanging fruit on the other idiotic things he said about BFCs lack of any value when he was asked about it Sunday like Zuffa buying WFA for one single contract as being more valuable then the eintire BFC library and the value of all of their fighters contracts and futures.

BFC is not for sale and that pisses White off because he doesn't care until he is threatened financially.

We all know by now. No value=not for sale

Bjorn gave him a nice counter hook there. Pointed out that UFC's own partners just threw millions at Bellator while seeming like he aint even mad.
