I'm not normally one for conspiracy theories, but could this have been a calculated move by Dana? Fitch despit being a top WW, is not a big draw, so from a business standpoint he isn't really that big of an asset to the UFC. If he signs with another organization, he still won't be a big draw, but he might be some of their up and comers and prevent them from becoming a draw.
