The fine folks at Submission Radio interviewed Bellator MMA president Scott Coker to discuss what happened with the signing of former WWE midcard Superstar Ryback. Below are some quotes:

"Yeah, we talked to him and we just couldn't put the deal together," Coker told Submission Radio. "So if he wanted to come back and change his mind... I think it's easier for him to stay in some type of wrestling and be an entertainer.”

As for why talks broke down, Coker elaborated:

"I'm not exactly sure, because they were talking to Rich (Chou), our matchmaker, but I think it was just basically on what the economics were," said Coker, on why talks broke down. "Sometimes the fighter or an athlete feels they're valued a certain price, and sometimes we don't feel that way.”
