Bellator must be ecstatic.

Cutting Fitch...REALLY? Beyond insane.

I hope it backfires in the biggest possible way. I hope these guys add recognition to Bellator and other organizations.

We have no information. The internet only tells you so much. It could be anything.

But still... I'm sad.
I hope these guys get paid well, wherever they end up.

I honestly didn't know Fitch had so much support here. I thought his name had become an unpleasant verb.

Dafuq? Ive always thought fitch was way overrated but hes no doubt a top 10 WW and a tough fight for anyone, beating fitch means you're legit, hes a great gatekeeper....why would you cut him??? UFC is becoming a joke! Too bad he doesnt have much fans but ppl should blast dana about this on twitter

Though i am interested in fitch vs askren...i think ben beats him, but its an interesting fight to see where askren stands

Man, these contracts the UFC makes fighters sign must be against the law or something. Being able to cut a guy without pay just like that? I remember hearing that they're not actual employees but independent contractors... thinking about it, I find that shady as hell.

Oh that guy? He sucks. We're talking about broke Fitch. He rocks.

Doesn't make the UFC look very professional when their fighters find out they've been released through the media.

Maybe their managers had already been informed but who knows.
