As far as I know he's eligible to negotiate right now, but turned down the UFC's last offer because it was less than what he's making with KSW and he and his management feel he's worth more as a talent. From what I've read, he was offered something like a 20-20 deal and he's making 30 right now with KSW without the travel expenses etc. Here's what I've read.

I wouldn't doubt that they make another run at Khalidov VERY SOON, pay him closer to what he wants and once he debuts, he makes a hard run against many of the perennial MW challengers.
