Fitch pissed off Dana way back when he would not sign his image over to the UFC for them to use.( something close to that anyway) and has been on the wrong side of Dana every since, I thought it was common knowledge he hated fitch. I have heard Dana talk about fitch and has never had anything good to say. Im not a fitch fan, I think he is boring but I know he is a top fighter and top talent. He pissed Dana off..

Edgar indeed. If it's a money thing, wouldn't it make more sense to cut the guy who probably makes a hell of a lot more than Fitch, and has had worse outings recently?

Edgar is in the eyes of many the Lightweight Champ. Fitch isn't as good as he used to be but he's still a top guy and should be fighting among the best.

Sad to see some of them go, but I'm pretty happy to see Fitch gone. He can go fight Askren and be part of the most boring fight in history.

Please don't misunderstand, I absolutely think Fitch should still be in the UFC

This is a surprise for sure. I know Fitch had some bad history with Zuffa in the past, maybe this has something to do with the decision? There is a lot that happens behind closed doors that we will never know.

He got caught against Hendricks, then came back and absolutely dominated Silva. I didn't see the Maia fight but he must have looked really terrible - you're only as good as your last fight.

What the ****?! Are they trying to make Bellator sign them for too much money so they have to close down?
