Because he has no choice but to take what the UFC offer him right? Oh wait there are other options left? Josh much like every other fighter will negotiate a deal that is in HIS best interests. If thats not with the UFC then hey ho he fights elsewhere. As few options as there are left, thanks to Heir Dana and his quest for his Reich of world domination, there is of course One FC, Bellator et al. The UFC have always been difficult to negotiate, and are now in a position to dictate their own terms because there are so little options left, thanks again to the UFC. If Josh is better off without them more power to him.
