Bellator has been getting a lot of old UFC talent. Not sure if this is just a phenomenon like TNA getting old WWE cast offs, or if it indicates some bad blood between the old talent and the UFC. Or are these folks just trying to get paid? But there does seem to be some significance to Royce Gracie going with Bellator beyond the significance of Tito Ortiz or Rampage Jackson or whoever. It suggests that there is no sense of significant loyalty on the part of the UFC, Gracie, or both.
There has been much talk about Rand Paul’s shenanigans recently: from supporting open borders, to supporting amnesty, to often sounding like Al Sharpton, to endorsing Lindsey Graham, to, basically, sounding like the exact opposite of his father. Now, some have said that Rand Paul has, in fact, become a full-fledged establishment Libertardian Inc. player. Others maintain that this is mere posture and he’s just “playing the game”. If he is just “playing the game,” to what end? His own aggrandizement?
