There are many organizations that have already reached out that pretty much pay what the UFC pays in some capacity, And now with the avenue of having sponsors potentially involved, there are avenues I could make the same money as a UFC fighter elsewhere.
I have no ill will toward the UFC, I don’t think being upset about it does anyone good. Especially myself. I don’t want to burn any bridges, but I also want to look at it in the positive aspects where I’m happy and healthy, and I’ve been successful in 20 of my professional times.
