There has to be much more to this than meets the eye. Some thing is very off about all of this.

Bellator could use most of these guys for sure. They can't keep recycling guys back into the tourney. Santiago would be a great add still as well. Even Heiron. I wonder if World Series picks up any of them for a fight?

Yeah Jay almost beat Askren when he got his chance. I think Fitch could beat Askren as well. I'd also love to see my boy Douglas Lima fight Santiago. That could be entertaining.

This is nonsense. Fitch is still a easy top 10 welterweight I have no idea why they would release him. There must be some other reason behind this or its just complete bullshit. Also I don't think Etim, Sass, Che Mills, Santiago, Russow, or Volkman deserved to be released.

Neither are guys like Gleison Tibau and Matt Wiman, yet they're still employed.

I get Fitch wasn't the most exciting to most but the guy just won FOTN and derailed a very highly touted prospect, and is still a top ten fighter, I'm hoping this is a money issue and Fitch comes back because there's no excuse for cutting him and letting a guy like Gleison Tibau keep his job.

Pretty crazy to think Leonard Garcia still fights for the UFC but guys like Fitch, Volkmann and Sass don't. Madness.

EDIT: For ****s sake. A guy like Dan Hardy even went on a 4 fight skid.

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