Bellator sues UFC, alleges “tortious interference of contract” of Jonathan Brookins
The legal battle between the Bellator Fighting Championships and the
Ultimate Fighting Championship has taken an unexpected turn.
While Zuffa, LLC – the parent company of the UFC – recently filed suit
in Nevada against Bellator due to an alleged theft of “trade secrets and
confidential Zuffa documents,” Bellator officials have now fired back
with a suit of their own.
MMAjunkie.com has learned that Bellator Sport
Worldwide, LLC today filed suit against Zuffa in a New Jersey court and
alleges that “The Ultimate Fighter 12” cast member Jonathan Brookins joined the Spike TV reality series while still under
an exclusive contract for Bellator.
