Bryan Barberena had an excellent win over Matt Brown at UFC Columbus. The fight was very fun and the two put on quite the show in Ohio. It appears there’s a chance that was the last fight of Barberena’s career.
The fight against Matt Brown was the last fight on Bryan Barberena’s UFC contract. The welterweight revealed after the fight that he had no interest in fighting anywhere else and could be looking to hang up the gloves.
“This is the last fight on my contract. I haven’t been open about that, but this is the last fight on my contract. UFC didn’t say anything about renegotiating, I tried to ask about it,” Barberena told reporters including MMAFighting.
“Dana White, let’s talk. I’d love to keep fighting, I’d love to keep putting on shows. I don’t want to fight anywhere else. If this is it, you don’t want me no more, that’s OK. I’ll hang ‘em up here.
“I should’ve left my gloves in the Octagon if that’s the case. But if not, I’d love to keep putting on shows.”
If the UFC chooses to not re-sign Bryan Barberena, then the decision is simple. The welterweight won’t keep fighting if it’s not with the UFC.
“I’d be done,” he said. “Me and my wife talked about this a lot. UFC’s where I wanna be. It was the goal the whole time. I love being here, they treat me well. I love being in front of these fans.
“It’s the biggest organization out there, the best organization out there, as far as I’m concerned. And if they don’t want me to come out and put on shows anymore, I’ll hang ‘em up. And I’ll go spend my daily at the farm with the family and work on building that.”
