    “They said they had no interest in extending my contract at this time, and instead, they offered me my show and win money,” Smith today told MMAjunkie Radio. “So they said they’ll just pay me off, and since they’re giving me the win bonus, it counts as the last fight on my contract. So, I guess that would mean I’m a free agent now.”

    Guess that union better include multiple fight orgs

    “(The UFC) showed their cards,” Smith said. “They showed that it’s more important to them to do this thing, this unprecedented paying of a win bonus – I don’t think that’s ever happened before – to someone who did not accept a fight because the other person came overweight. So for them to do that, I think indicates how much they don’t really want to have to deal with me anymore.”

    It's really interesting.
    She'll be fighting somewhere, she's in great shape, a good enough fighter, great personality.
    I hope Spearhead doesn't negate all employment opportunities.

    Could be worse. They could have just cut her like they do so many others.
