    Because he has a contract that says he gets $300k to fight.

    The UFC pays their HWs really well. I assume they don't want to lose the few they have to Bellator. I remember Hunt was making like $700K a fight and still bitching about the UFC.

    Because he cucked Dana at the contract negotiation.

    I guess because he has a good manager that got him a good contract. He still has plenty of name recognition even today, despite only losing or winning boring decisions nowadays. Probably a contract the UFC would like to take back.

    Dana has always liked AA and he publicly stated he was sad when AA fought out his contract and left the last time.

    He’s a guy Dana respects.

    Because he's a name and takes years off of his life competing in a sport for our entertainment?

    The only guy I’ve ever heard Dana say he treated wrong when he let him leave. I think he repaid him when he signed again.

    I don't really have much of a problem with him continuing to fight just surprised he wasn't given a pay cut at some point.

    great manager indeed.
