UFC released Anderson and grants him free agency. Bellator, PFL and One have all declined to sign him. Where will he fight? I don’t think that anyone else will pay his salary. BKFC?

You either bring him in and he smashes your current roster and makes it look UFC washouts can own bellator etc.


Or


You bring him in to get KOed and everyone thinks you are putting on a tito v chuck senior abuse match.

I think that he is too expensive for BKFC also.I don`t know where he can go.KSW seems unlikely.

They spent all their millions on Paige’s contract?

Rizin and there are other Japanese orgs that may be interested.. but this legit feels like he's being blacklisted. I'm not an anderson fan, but I really don't like what's going on here.

What is his asking price? I just have a feeling these smaller organizations just don't think it is worth it.  I feel bad saying I want to see Anderson vs Manhoef or Fedor, matches I wished happened over a decade ago.

Blacklisted? Why would other orgs oblige the UFC in any way?

It's likely his asking price the major hurdle

Of course they want him. Bellator just had 60 year old Shamrock and Royce fight. It's just games.

What could his asking price be? I am sure he was making a lot in the ufc, but he would have to be realistic you would think

UFC should just let him fight out his contract and then retire.  Gimme a retirement fight vs the Chris or shogun

Anderson either wants to much money or there is a medical issue.

Just my 2 cents but he should sit out a year and just train do some grappling matches and wait.

 Once COVID hopefully becomes less of an issue promoters can sell tickets and fill arenas and have a bit more cash to throw around.

I found this.

UFC 168: Anderson Silva (c) vs. Chris Weidman and Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Cat Zinagno, December 28th, 2013. 1,025,000 buys equals an estimated PPV share of $1,662,500.
