Barnett denies Affliction pay cut rumors

After first coming out and saying “I ain’t taking no damn 50% pay cut“, Josh Barnett is now back saying that Affliction isn’t asking anyone to do that:

-Straight from the mouths of my friends Tom Attencio and Todd Beard; No one is being asked to take a pay cut. They would never ask anyone to take a pay cut and don’t intend to. Tom was only referring to any fighters that may have been thinking that they could get an exorbitant amount of money from Affliction just because. Again, no pay cuts asked and expected and they are doing just fine.

So I guess this whole pay thing was just a big misunderstanding? Although if most of the fighters were signed to multi-fight deals, wouldn’t that mean the money side of things has already been established?
