Silva is kind of sending a message there. I'm pretty sure he claimed that he kept Hardy because he comes to fight and entertain. Volkmann had a good record, but he wasn't very exciting. Against Green, he was content on riding his back and hoping to grind for a decision win, but Green on the other hand, when ever he got top position, he was eager to to finish and he eventually did. Not going to lie, when ever Volkmann got top position, it was pretty lack luster, but when Green did, I was very entertained and on the edge of my seat.

Not saying I agree with Silva's decision there, but it wouldn't surprise me if that was the reason.

Soon, it will be 'Homeless Fitch', then everyone watch out.

I wouldn't be surprised if Fitch goes out, wins a fight, and is then brought back to the UFC under a renegotiated contract. This is probably a standard, albeit dirty tactic to get him back under contract for less money.

It's a shame all you 'long time' Fitch fans weren't more vocal in your support over the years. Perhaps UFC brass would have taken notice had you expressed your unwavering love and support before, during, and after all of Jon's many classics.

I know sometimes Dana does decide to cut/sign guys and book fights but I'm pretty sure Silva handles it most of the time. That is his job after all and Dana is likely far too busy doing cocaine off of hookers in a private jet to oversee that aspect of the business.

I'm not into conspiracy theories but if Fitch is expensive then something may very well be awry in the UFC.

White feels good. Make no mistake about it.
Like we never seen great pilots being fired from airlines or wnderful doctors dismissed by a hospital paper pusher.
Talent had zero to do with that.

Fitch is only super expensive if you are hemorrhaging money and dont want to admit it.
