This does a good job of summing up my frustration as a fan.

Empty my butt. Generalizations are fun, aren't they? Between streams & a certain torrent site (which always has a torrent of the PPV in HD up within 15 min of it ending) I don't need to buy PPVs at all; doing things that way certainly hasn't affected me viewing the sport at my leisure thus far. (I only bought 2 events last year, because the UFC=WWE direction has been grinding on me for a while now)

Most people don't stay true to their words, though, so I'll forgive you for that. :]

Note: If the UFC had any real competition, this kind of thing wouldn't happen.

I wonder how White feels knowing a guy they released could still beat most of his welterweights that are still employed. Fitch is still a top 10 if not top 5 welterweight in my opinion. Maybe they can renegotiate a contract in the future that interests both parties if the contract is the issue.

According to Jacob Volkmann, it wasn't Dana that released him, it was Joe Silva.

The same man that kept Dan Hardy on a 4 fight losing streak. Still makes zero sense. He isn't even coming off back to back loses. He has a 1st round finish between his 2 losses and is 6-2 in the division. Doesn't matter who cut him, still doesn't make any sense.

The only bit that surprised me is the cut of several British fighters, they carry the British cards. But the hard truth is, much as I love how British fighters are generally finishers, they don't handle grinders too well. UFC loves finishers, but you need to be able to surpass the grinders.

I think the UFC expected these two in particular to come through last weekend, and they just didn't look great. Worn down fighters like Shogun and Wand, stick them in Brazil and they transform. Didn't happen in England this week, it was a great opportunity for Sass and Mills.

Fitch... Dana has never liked his fighting. The Silva fight was cool, but I think Dana has always had it in for him, and being dominated for 3 rounds was enough to make the cut.

Volkmann I feel sorry for.

I wasn't really making an argument of who's right and who's wrong, I was just posting information for information sake.
