Josh Barnett Discusses Not Signing With The UFC
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.19.2013



- Yesterday Josh Barnett released a statement to the MMA Hour, through his manager, explaining not signing with the UFC. Here is the statement…

"I was excited to fight Junior. I thought he was a favorable match up for me, but Zuffa was unwilling to give me something that they gave Eddie Alvarez. No disrespect to Eddie, but I felt it was fair to give it to me as well. Although things seem to be working out well for me, I feel bad for the fans. They wanted me to fight certain guys in the UFC and I really wanted to give them those fights. Once we get the deal we are working on done, the fight the fans scream for will be lost forever."

It had been previously reported that Alvarez was scheduled to get paid $75,000 to show and another $75,000 to win, including a cut of PPV buys ($1 for every buy between 200,000 to 400,000 units, $2 for each buy sold between 400,000 to 600,000 units and $2.50 for each buy sold over 600,000 units), a signing bonus, a fight on FOX and commentary work with the promotion.
