Doubtful. Cause then Dana would probably be saying he has to wait out the specified time on his contract and not the number of fights. Or like people have said on here, they probably wouldn't give him that last fight until the end of the time on his contract.

Avenge a loss to Barnett? The fact that Barnett was stripped of the title for roids does that by itself.

So winning wouldn't mean jack if he didn't then fight everyone other fighter Fedor has fought? Nice logic.

Good point.

I think he was offered that fight 2 months after he left the UFC, or tried to. And I think he actually does have an injury, I think he rebroke his band or arm, not 100% on that though.

I thought at the time he said it was his understanding that his contract was up in a couple months or something like that.

Randy thinks that his contract expires at a certain date, while the UFC says it only expires when he fights the last two fights that are left on his contract.
