In the statement, Barberena commented on not being re-signed by the promotion.

“It’s been a hell of a ride! My contract has ended with the UFC and I have not been resigned. In the meantime I’ll be enjoying my family, farming, and drinking some Ridge Rum. A lot of opportunity out there to let the hands fly and hurt some feelings, so we will see where the Bam Bam Nation rises next. Thank you to the Bam Bam Nation, the fans, and those who enjoyed watching my fights. Thank you to the UFC, It’s been a blast.”

Barberena called for an opportunity to face Mike Perry in bare-knuckle boxing. Perry knocked out Thiago Alves at BKFC KnuckleMania 4 on Saturday, after just 60 seconds.
