elysian - I believe that The Warmaster is a much better overall fighter then DC, and if not for his broken hand, he'd have won that fight.
That's false. Phone Post

terrible news, had to do with Wrestling Shows in Japan?


Its just speculation right now but I've seen some people suggesting its over drug testing.

Because why wouldnt his manager talk about wrestling if thats the case?

Nobody knows yet but the 3 things it could be are wrestling, drug testing or PPV money.

elysian - Avoided TOP HW's?

LOL

Rogers? Kharitonov? Nogueira? Cro Cop? Hunt?

I assume you're referring to my post and apparently the "past 6+ years" part confused you.  He has not fought Nog, Cro Cop, or Hunt in the past 6 years.

And you can LOL all you want, but since he left Pride, he hasn't fought top guys.  In the past 6 years, top HW's not in the UFC consisted of Fedor, Werdum, Overeem, Arlovski, Bigfoot Silva, Sylvia, Rothwell, Roy Nelson, etc...  Barnett fought in the same organization as all of them and they all managed to fight each other, yet Barnett magically avoided ALL of them.

He's fought 1 top guy in the past 6 years, and he lost.


This.

Bullshit. So sick of hearing if so and so didn't do this or maybe if they did this they would have won. Fighters win and fighters lose quit acting like you know what WOULD have happened. Fag-it Phone Post

3, 4, 5 years ago the UFC needed quality HWs who were in competing promotions. Not so much anymore.

Big EP - I'm a little bummed. My opinion, I bet it was % of PPV compensation.
I'm guessing it was owning his own image. Phone Post

I could see that.

That's what sucks about the UFC. Say you go somewhere else because it's not working out, now you have no more highlight reel of yourself. It's fucking rediculous

how does this work exactly?

There was a thread where Shane Carwin explained it all, it was about Bellators likeness rights and Carwin broke it down.

NAKMEEZY - Cormier already schooled him. UFC signed some big heavyweights this past 6 months. UFC needs Barnett way less than Barnett needs UFC..
Get real man - he lost a war to possibly the best heavyweight out there? Barnett is a beast - and while yes the UFC doesn't "need" him, it's not like he will starve if he avoids the zuffa banner. Phone Post

lol, you're a fucking n00b.

Definitely a loss for the UFC, but where ever he decides to fight, I'm looking forward to seeing Barnett back in action.

Yes I believe everyone has to do it.  Remember when Fitch refused and they cut him?


If this is the case i absolute bullshit and zuffa isn't thinking about the fans.

oh sure there's plenty of ufc type paychecks in mma to be had.  just cuz u don't starve doesn't mean u get to eat steak. 

also u missed his point, he simply said he needs the ufc more than the ufc needs him.  fact

crackhead mentality.

Zuffa just singed a guy who couldn't land a punch on Josh, while mid-flu..

Dudes a beast they can sign him or not, but saying he ain't all that is just ignorant...

Random drug testing?


I'm betting this is at least one of the "outlying issues."
