    He was supposed to be fighting JDS and his manager was saying it was a sticking point but it wasnt money... Barnett said

    "I was excited to fight JR. (sic)," said Barnett in a written statement obtained today by "I thought he was a very favorable matchup 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."

    PPV Cut or a Signing bonus is what MMAJunkie was thinking.

    For what its worth I think Junior would do him in. Shame if UFC wont pay him what he is due but maby they feel for a guy who gets 250K in SF he didnt need a signing bonus. I doubt Eddie was offered the same basic pay as him.

    Could see him having a once a year superfight in Japan and just sticking to Pro wrestling. Disapointing end to a career of one of the greats in the devision.
