UFC and the Dan Henderson still have not reached a deal.
Thanks to MMA Fighting for the statments:
“I was fairly surprised that it’s as far away as what I thought I fair offer would have been,” he said. “I don’t know if I’d go so far as to say I was insulted, but I know what they’re trying to accomplish and trying to get everybody for as cheap as they can. That’s what they like to do. I don’t take it personally, but it was a lot lower than I expected.
“What I was asking for is a decent pay cut from what I was making,” he said. “Which I thought was fair.” “I think that they’re trying to slash it quit a bit more than that,” he said. “So, I just feel that that’s not realistic from where it should be. But we’re working on it.”
The 43 year old is currently on a three fight losing streak. Let’s just say it was a bad 2013 for “Hendo”
“I haven’t set a deadline, but it’s getting to that point,” he said. “It’s getting to that point that it’s dragging on a little too long, and with the holidays and a couple of shows in December it did drag on a little bit. But I’m pretty sure we’ll get it figured out in the next week or two.”
