I'm sure Dana got a major hard-on when he announced Fedor's cut, but it doesn't matter anyway, because SF will be dead by the end of the year.

The fighters they're cutting are fighters that wouldn't have competed again by then regardless, and this way Zuffa doesn't have to worry about keeping them insured through training the rest of the year. Anyone who is cut can still try for a UFC contract. Well, except the chicks.

He didn't sign his contract with the UFC/Zuffa but with SF/Showtime before Zuffa bought it.

You can disagree with you're boss and have an argument with him over something work related and you're not going to be fired, its called a union and it's in place for that very reason. You might be suspended for a very rash decision for a couple of days but at the end of the day, you still get to keep the job.

Yes, I know. I was comparing it saying maybe it was a contract similar to UFC's on their fighters.

My question is, why wait until these guys lose. If you want them gone so badly, why not just cut them outright?

It's obvious that if Fedor fights in the near future it will be on one of the remaining M1 cards... Or maybe after a new Showtime M1 contract next year.

Exactly!

That doesn't sound like a smart move...

LOL Dana...you're a funny man

I would guess it is because he still had value before the Hendo fight and plus it was a superfight.

Now his value is diminished and what SF fight is left for him? Should they make him fight Arlovski again?

Fedor was not cut because anyone in particular wanted him out, he was cut because he was headlining events and didn't win, 3 times in a row. If he'd won those fights, there'd probably be threads now about Fedor fighting for the UFC belt in his next fight.

It's not personal, it's business. Fedor is no longer what his name says he is, and he's still managed by incompetent fools, Zuffa doesn't have time for that.

This has to be the reason. Why would you resign a 34 year old with 3 losses in a row?
