Fitch was dominated by Maia, but not finished like Story. His fight before that against Erick Silva was epic! I call bullsh*t when Dana says he doesn't dislike Fitch.

Fully expected Grispi, and maybe Sass...but COME ON!!!

He looked very good vs Silva, a young and dangerous fighter.

That's what I'm confused about. Fitch's past 2 fights have been his most exciting fights in quite some time!

I think there is something else to this list, i mean there are some guys on that list who's win to loss ratio isn't too bad but have been cut.

I mean what is it now lose 2 fights and your out? there wont be many fighters left.

Dan 'THE OUTLAW' Hardy

Mauricio 'SHOGUN' Rua
Alexander 'THE MAULER' Gustafsson
Brad 'ONE PUNCH' Pickett
John 'THE HITMAN' Hathaway
Frankie 'THE ANSWER' Edgar

A lot of suprising names there. Mills, Sass, Fitch and Volkmann stick out the most. Mills and Sass will probably be back soon but I don't think we'll ever see Volkmann or Fitch again. Which sucks. I liked 'em both.

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

WTF......

Fitch is 6-2-1 in his last 9, he looked great against Silva and he got KO'd by a guy who has massive power and out grappled by the single best grappler in the UFC, Maia had his back for 3 full rounds almost and couldn't sub him, if anything it shows how damn good Fitch actaully is, how does this make any sense at all?

Contract negotiations would be the only way.
