Fernandes says he didnt agree terms with the UFC and was never contracted to begin with;

"Negotiations between the UFC and myself did take place, however, we could not resolve the issues on the table and as a result we did not come to an agreement. The recent reports that have been circulating in the media are false, contrary to what is being said, I am not a UFC athlete.

"I am a family man before anything else and my profession as an athlete in this sport provides me with the ability and the necessary means to provide for my family. I did not find the terms set before me by the UFC beneficial to my family and as a result an agreement could not be reached and no contract was signed.

ONE FC offered him a better deal apparently:

“@arielhelwani: Update on Bibiano: He says he never signed a UFC contract. I can confirm he was offered a better contract by ONE FC -- http://t.co/RLMo8Klb” Phone Post

 Is there any other sport where the big leagues get outbidded by the small leagues?

That is Khalidov and Fernandes, two highly regarded fighters that UFC have lost out on due to their lowball tactics.

Weird because I was just on UFC.com the other day and Bibiano is listed under their bantamweight roster.

Just re-checked and he's still there. Phone Post

They arent big enough draws for the UFC to get in a bidding war with. Phone Post

There not but it just goes to show that ahving one big org doesnt mean you get all the fighters in 1 place, it means 1 org gets to decide the market value for everyone and will obviously use that power to their advantage to low ball certain fighters they do not deem draws out of the gate.  Anderson Silva was not a draw for years.

A monopoly is never a good thing.

I guess the ongoing negotiations are...still ongoing.

I think he's expecting 6 figures per fight.

He must not have confidence in his abilities because if he did he'd take less to fight in the UFC.
