Josh Barnett may be up on the roster, but according to Barnett’s manager, it doesn’t mean anything. Here’s what manger Leland LaBarre had to say on the recent decline of the UFC contract.

“We agreed on guaranteed compensation,” LaBarre said. “In fact, we never even countered. We accepted their original offer.

“However, there are some outlying issues — one in particular — that as of this point we were unable to agree on.”

White, formally against the signing of Barnett, had recently opened up to the signing. However, with the recent turn of events, Barnett may not be returning to the promotion he once held the title in.
