Fitch vs Diaz? Why? what for? fitch just gonna lay on him and diaz is gonna whine that he got wrestled to death.

you see it now. even though he's top 5 fighter, this is still entertainment business. even though ranking wise it doesnt really make sense to cut him, i definitely will not miss him.
This is not about Jon Fitch being boring, they cut him because he makes 66k every fight and is not fighting for a title. This is a money decision. Like 66k is going to make ZUFFA poor.
