Yeah this has me very, very concerned about the future of the UFC. No doubt in my mind now something up with the UFC. They have to be in some kind of financial trouble. This has me seriously worried.

I think it's a rude move, but a good one for the UFC.

None of those guys were going to be champs so why not let them go drown Bellator in debt?

Definitely sends a message to the rest of the roster.

This better be something financial related.

If this was based off performance they can go **** themselves, Fitch just had what was unanimously considered his best fight in the UFC against Silva, and beat him and then he got dominated by Maia, but Maia is a monster at 170 and Fitch is still a top ten guy, come to think of it he probably wasn't making that much anyway. Dude was the second best Welterweight for YEARS except for when he lost to GSP and Alves was tearing through people left and right and even then he was still number three behind GSP and Alves.

A ******* guy like Robbie Lawler who stared at Tim Kennedy and Lorenz Larkin and isn't anywhere near the top ten gets signed but Fitch who was top five for years, just beat a guy like Erick Silva who was being hyped up as the next best thing in a FOTN winning performance and still is top ten gets the shaft. The message has been sent and the UFC can go straight to ******* hell after this Machida/Hendo fight.

Volkmann tweeted that Silva was the one who cut him, not White so I think Silva was in charge of all this. Makes sense. Dude seems like an ass.

Eh, obviously Fitch is still a UFC caliber talent. However I' be lying if I said I cared that he was cut. Never really entertains me and is caught in limbo at WW as he clearly won't ever be an actual threat for the belt again. It's whatever to me.
