Maybe I'm just a butthurt Fitch fan but this cut is so ludicrous to me.

The reason Koscheck is still around is because he can actually sell a PPV with his mouth and can produce knockouts for the highlight videos. Also, he is a company guy who doesn't complain about his pay and title shots. He takes his fights, goes for a knockout, and calls someone out.

Fitch is the type of fighter that annoys Dana and crew because of his "the most important thing is winning" mentality. You saw how furious it made Dana when Roy Nelson implied that winning was more important than being exciting.

Dana wants knockouts, submissions, and highlight reel material, period. He's becoming much more transparent about it now with the FOX deal.
