Pat Healy Frustrated With Lack Of Guarantees From UFC
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.02.2013



In an interview with MMA Mania, Pat Healy says he's frustrated that he hasn't received a guaranteed contract with the UFC. He recently posted on Twitter that he's tired of fighting scrubs and being ducked.

On his situation right now: "Well, I think I hit a spot where all these other guys at 155 have been moved to the UFC and the guys I was supposed to fight, I think once they found out Strikeforce was going under, they got certain guarantees from the UFC that they could be in there and once they got those guarantees, I think they pulled out of the fight thinking "why risk it?" and I just can't figure out why I'm the only one that's got to fight for my job when guys I've beaten like Caros Fodor are getting shots. He's coming off a loss to me and he's getting a fight straight in the UFC. I have to go in there and fight whoever they can scrounge up for my contract."

On if he's heard anything from UFC: "No, I've been given no guarantee. Basically, what I'm getting is "win you're in, lose you're out," and they're going around to whoever they can find and telling them that, 'Hey, if you beat Pat Healy, you're in. If you don't, then you're sitting in the same spot you're at now.' It's like I made somebody mad. I don't know what I've done. All I've ever done is taken every fight they've given me. I've taken two short notice fights for 'em and those are the only two fights of mine that have ever been on the main card. (laughs) I just feel like, "Man, who did I upset? What did I do?" I'm sorry if I did something."

On his hope for the January 12 Strikeforce show: "I just want a big fight, man. I don't want to fight an opponent who nobody's ever heard of or someone they'll downplay if I have a good fight, saying, "Well he should have won." I want to fight somebody big and I feel like I've earned it. It's hard too because I am super thankful for Strikeforce. They have given me a great life and a great career in the promotion. As frustrated as I am, I do appreciate everything they've done for me. I just want it to keep rolling. I want to keep the same life that's been provided for me. I just want to get rolling and make sure that when the music stops, I still have a seat."
