ufc not trying to have good HWs?

I just read on Insidefighting.com that Paul Beuntelo (spelling) is still a free agent. now I know Paul is not the best in the world but surely he's one of the best out there. and how the ufc HW div is looking you'd think ufc would've resigned him right after his contract was up. so it's either contract negotiations or ufc isn't even trying.
