You people go way overboad with this conspiracy theory crap. Relax guys. Maybe their management should have thought about that before they tried to start the war in the first place. Easier to get rid of the fighters than fight with the management team all the time. I somewhat agree with Dana. Haters are just gonna hate. It gets a little too ridiculous around here for me.

Dana said he's cutting Sergei whether he wins or loses. Right now Sergei is just there to fill a slot in the Sept 10 Showtime event.

We are talking at the conclusion of the Grand Prix right? I thought he said he's cutting him either after he looses or after the Grand Prix when it was complete. It all depends on how Kharintov does.

i dont think this problem would even exist had strikeforce not been bought by zuffa. they even run along together with m1.
just another zuffa vs fighters management all over again i guess. what can you expect really, you have yakuza running pride, italian mafia running zuffa and (their childhood buddy who is a son of satan), m1 mafia running red devil and dutch mafia running gg, lol.

Yeah, this would not be a problem otherwise. But Strikeforce is under the Zuffa banner so that's how it is. Something tells me this is the end of Strikeforce and M-1 copromoting.

Very dumb decision on Golden Glory's part to not follow policy. Such a silly reason to get all their fighters cut.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Yeah, it is an unusual management style. I guess the fighters trust their gym so they do it that way. Unfortunate that we will have to see those fighters in other promotions now.

Couldn't Golden Glory just relent, at least in the cases of fighters employed by Zuffa? I mean, isn't it worth it, to save their fighters' jobs?

I don't mean to be prejudicial but I think it's a European thing. M-1 Global wanted a good chunk of money they got whenever Fedor fought. Golden Glory is doing the same thing here.
