Yeah but there were plenty of people that thought Sass deserved another opportunity. It's not like he was a total bust in the UFC. He had some nice wins. He was 3-2 in the UFC with 3 finishes in a row. His cut could have been pay related because his performance wasn't that bad. He actually created a little buzz on his win streak. I think it's a good move. Sass is still better then some fighters currently in the UFC.
I totally agree that Sass should have gotten one more shot and that he is plenty talented, I just think it would have served Bellator to let him win a couple of regional fights before signing him. Picking up guys that are on a losing streak (even short ones) never looks good.
