Seriously? I hope they sign at least 200 fighters then because some of the cards they put on lately were standing on rubber legs due to injuries.

Unwarranted title shots, cutting people that don't deserve it. The UFC is on one these days..

Hated Fitch for years, but his performance against Silva turned me into a big fan. Really fought his heart out in that fight with everything on the line as he was broke at the time. Was in awe of his submission defence. Im sure thats gotta be the same for plenty of fans.

The UFC needs to save money since their growth has stalled due to ever growing questionable business decisions as of late, even if they dont admit or dispute the numbers. They had to "layoff" quite a number of employees here. Darn shame these guys' livelihoods are paying for Dana's/UFC's stupidity.

My mind is exploding right now.

Fitch is top-10 WW easily (worldwide, not just UFC). I liked Matyushenko and thought he is pretty solid, and I'm surprised they'd release a young guy like Etim. Other than Fitch, they aren't even paying these guys that much to fight... yet Hardy can go on a 4 fight skid and is still hanging around, like that weird kid that sits in the corner alone at a house-party, but doesn't say a word.

Something is weird about this -- has the UFC ever released this many guys at once? My guess is they are either trying to save some money, or they are freeing up some roster space to sign a bunch of 125s-155s.
