If its true and Fedor has one fight left on his contract, the UFC should have used him for the final SF show. They could have "let go' Brock, had Brock "sign" w/ SF for one fight, and put on a mega show w/ huge numbers for everyone.

But you need exposure to the public and investment in the first place to grow talent. If they fold women MMA now there will be less female athletes willing to train in MMA where they now think that they don't have a future.

Exactly, I lose respect for Dana by the day. The guy has nothing ever good to say and is on a mission to ruin fighters/camps/divisions if they aren't ready to do 'as he says'.

Wtf yall getting mad at Dana for??? Not only does it say he didnt have much to do with the decision BUT EVEN IF HE DID he still is correct. Fedor lost 3 in a row and Dana has every right to can him until he gets some wins.

Nothing wrong here.
Go Dana

Well this just means that Dana White isn't resigning Fedor. Considering the Strikeforce contract is up I think he has a right to practice that option. If Fedor wants to continue to fight on Showtime with M-1 Global then that is his business.

Great news for MMA. Dude was getting paid FAR more than he was worth. Now I never have to hear about his overrated ass ever again.

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

I have to agree that before his loss to Werdum is was already subject whether he deserved that much money. Now it's confirmed that he demands far more then he is worth. If he wants to be considered seriously then he needs to start back with smallertime fighters.

I don't agree with the part about him fighting inferior fighters. I feel he just needs to get with the times and improve his training methods. He's totally old school, and MMA has developed at an astounding rate recently. He's probably had 6 fights since this influx of newly improved fighters. In those 5 fights he's lost 3. Clearly what he's been doing isn't working. If he was to take an approach similar to GSP and train all aspects of his MMA with legit world class practitioners then he'd definitely improve even at his age.

In regards to the Dana situation I don't think his recent actions are all that consistent with a true MMA revolutionary. What he's effectively doing is strengthening UFC to insane levels. This is to the detriment of MMA as a sport. Since he's come into the UFC he's made all these claims of wanting to develop the sport, but with the cut of Coenen I'm starting to think he's not all that interested in building a sport. He seems more interested in building a very profitable business.

It doesn't make sense to pay Fedor millions to lose. He's not even a big enough draw in the US to justify it even if he was winning.
