do you think that they will get some sort of compensation pay? if not would the fighters be in a position to sue them for money?
from an uneducated point of view of these kind of things it seems as though contractually the fighters would be entitled to some sort of pay check, no?
I read somewhere that most fight contracts do not offer pay unless the fighter actually fought, which is unfortunate.
Then Josh Barnett must be one hated sumbitch by the other fighters on that card (or heck in the whole organization).
Yep. Just a few fleeting glances at MMA websites have revealed to me so far: Mousasi disparaging him, and Brock saying he “made the wrong choice” to take whatever he did. Also, Forrest revealed that a lot of guys who train with him won’t be getting paid now. I wonder if Barnett will ever fight again.[/quote]
I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if his career was over.
I mean, even if the UFC wind up signing him:
he’s gonna be getting paid much, much, less than I’m sure Affliction was paying him (and much less than he would have gotten paid by the UFC prior to this mishap)
he probably won’t get a title shot for a looooong time (if ever)
he may have lost any sponsorships/endorsement deals that he had going
On the upside for him, he’s only 32 and may have some decent years left in him. So, it’s not impossible that he could make a comeback.
