Its still sad to see him go. For years, his fighting style to the MMA community was the rear end of a joke. And when people finally warmed up to him after 2 exciting bouts, UFC cuts him. I guess this is one of those things where you don't realise what you have until its gone.
I think it has more to do with the fact that even though many consider Fitch a boring fighter with a dull personality, people, fans or not, respected his skill/talent level, his work ethic, and realized that he's one of the best in the world regardless of their views on his fighting style or personality. I for one am rather relieved that so many, even fans who dislike Fitch, are coming to his defense.

I'll wait until we hear the story behind this because Fitch does have a history of being rather difficult to work with, but if this cut is the result of Dana just being petty, then it's safe to say I think the UFC just took a huge hit to their credibility.

And MMA-Sportsman,
You know good and well you misunderstood my use of the term "political" during that conversation. But in this case, you're more than likely right.

Boring or not, Fitch cleared out the WW division for years.. he's elite.

Rebney should most definatly scoop up Fitch.. and Volkmann... those are two dangerous and solid fighters, Zuffa are fools for letting go of that kind of talent and thinking they can control the legitimacy of MMA rankings..

Woot, safe-fighter Fitch is finally gone. I hate Fighters like Fitch, they fight all safe for the W. This isn't an xbox live ranked match. This is a live sport and they need to entertain the paying customers and fans. Fitch just doesn't care for any of that so he rather dry hump his way to a victory.

Now it's time for Frankie Edgar, woot woot

No more LnP fighters or ghost-punch-kickers-runaway ***s like Guida as well.

Over the course of almost 2 and a half years Fitch has one win and it was over a prospect. Are you people ******* serious? He has looked good in one round of the other 3 fights he had over that time period two of which he was completely dominated in. He isn't a top five WW he beats cans and kids basically every fight in the top ten for him is either someone who will dominate him or a toss up.

Wow, are we really gonna start questioning Jon Fitch's legitimacy in the WW division right now? ******* hell!

He was 14-3-1 in the UFC 24-5-1 overall and looking at the list of fighters he's beaten, at the time, they were solid wins. He was also widely considered the number 2 WW in the world for a vast majority of his time in the UFC.

Jon Fitch is a TOP Welterweight.try and discredit his wins and who he has beaten all you want but that my friends is a fact!


Man, I never thought I'd be sticking up for Jon Fitch on here. Sheesh.

Who deserves it more, Fitch or Robby freaking Lawler?

Slept over it and I still think MMA organisations who can cut their fighters any time with no pay are shady as ****. The UFC basically owns these guys once they sign the contract and they cut guys and resign them for less money once they've picked up a win or two. Who does that?
