Just because the UFC is expanding into other countries doesn't mean it needs a roster of 2000 fighters. To speculate financial trouble is to jump the gun entirely, but again you label something 'logical' when you have none of the facts. I think the more logical argument is that UFC brass doesn't care for Jon Fitch, plain and simple.
Every one of these cuts is justifiable outside of Fitch. Yes there are others who could have been cut before fighters like Sass and Etim, but we've also heard that there are 100 more cuts to come. People are so eager to start a witch hunt when they know virtually nothing of why this happened or what will happen going forward. We still have people ripping Dana to pieces despite one of the cut fighters coming out and saying it was Joe Silva's doing.
I implore the 'UFC will get no more of my money' crowd to actually stand by its threats (empty though they certainly are). Because frankly I'm getting tired of the internet community posturing as though it could run this company better than men and women who not only brought it back from the verge of bankruptcy but turned it into a global empire.
