No, the UFC did not buy Bellator

MMA Twitter thinks the UFC bought Bellator ... but it's not what it seems.

First of all, take a deep breath and pay attention.

On Monday, after Michael Venom Page announced he was a free agent, several people noticed that he had a profile built on the UFC official website. They then noticed other Bellator fighters listed and jumped to the conclusion that Bellator was purchased by the UFC.

There's no indication that's correct.

In fact, those fighters have been listed on the site for quite some time since they have fights featured on UFC Fight Pass. So, before you start crying about a monopoly in the MMA world, wait for something a little more concrete to occur.

I'd put money that Bellator is bought soon ... but not by the UFC.

Stay tuned for that.
