They offered him a fair contract.

Khalidov is nowhere near the level needed to even be competitive with Anderson Silva.

He'd be a good signing as a prospect for the UFC MW division and I do think they should throw him into the proverbial "mix", but none of these middleweights currently doing well outside the UFC have shown me that they have anything close to the skills and attributes needed to pose a threat to Silva.

Yeah pump the breaks on the Silva thing, way too much. Guy hasn't faced really any formidable guy and his last big name was Santiago who he lost to. Guy would be a great signing and make for some interesting fights but UFC has no reason to go crazy with money for him.

I will never be in these guys position but I do find it crappy that these guys don't have the confidence in themselves to step up and earn their way to the fat pay check. You would think you would want to leave a legacy, guys like Bibiano and Mamed should be in the UFC.
