There are no guarantees in life or in the fight game.

That's the motto that Jay Hieron has lived his life by lately due to some unfortunate timing and opponent changes that left the former IFL fighter off of the latest Showtime televised card and without an expected title shot.

Now officially a free agent able to negotiate a new contract, Hieron's agent, Ken Pavia from MMA Agents, clarified the timeline for his client's next deal.

"He has an exclusive negotiating period with Strikeforce, but beyond that he is, he has no more fights left on his deal," said Pavia in an interview with MMAWeekly.com on Sunday. "There's an exclusive negotiating period, and then there's also a right to match, which is pretty standard in the industry at this point."

I think this is just a ploy to ensure Jay gets the next title shot against Diaz. I really don't see the UFC as an option, their WW roster is STACKED.

He needs to stay in SF. Not only too bolster a very thin SF WW Div., but also due to the fact that the UFC already has strong wrestlers with all around skills, like Hieron but better.
