The amount of speculating and finger pointing in this thread is ridiculous. We have literally zero facts, yet people are claiming that the UFC is in financial trouble, or that this is actually a calculated ploy to bankrupt Bellator. 3/4s of you never gave a rat's arse about Jon Fitch, and yet his release is the greatest travesty in the history of the sport. Talk about wishy-washy fans.
And I'm having a real laugh at anyone who claims that signing Jon Fitch is going to give Bellator the boost it needs to take on the UFC. Do you lot listen to yourselves? UFC is still home to GSP, Hendricks, and Maia, three WWs who destroyed Fitch, and yet Jon is going to be the game changer for Bellator? Oh, man... watch out Dana and company... Bellator might nab Wagner Prado as well!
