They just don't think much of you as a fighter. You may be great, but they don't agree. He's fought in a bunch of 2nd rate promotions, and not really excited too many with his fights. Dana has worked with tons of fighters he did not like. Hell most on the roster don't like him I would bet. From Tito, to Rampage, to Randy, to Hendo, on and on if you can fight, they usually sign you. But they don't think much of him. Maybe they had a kick at the can once, and he asked for too much money? So much for that..
