Over the years, UFC president Dana White, has made it known of his disdain for Bellator, and specifically Bjorn Rebney’s business tactics. When the UFC was attempting to sign Eddie Alvarez to a very lucrative offer, Bellator’s ludicrous matching clause caused Alvarez to sit out a year before accepting a Bellator contract.
After Eddie Alvarez defeated Michael Chandler in their epic rematch, Dana White took to twitter to express his feelings about Rebney’s top dog losing.
I’m hearing Djork oops Bjork got served a big fat plate of Karma tonight Congrats Eddie!!

Dana’s tweet seemed even more poignant after this ZombieProphet gif of Bjorn Rebney being upset over the decision went viral.
Today it was announced that Bellator 106 was the company’s most watch event in their history with 1.1 million viewers. Rebney, armed with the news of the event’s success, decided to take a jab back at Dana White:
@danawhite If Fight of the Year & 10 times better ratings than you did on your last televised show is Karma, bring me another plate.

Let’s hope this is just the beginning of the war of words between both men.
