Dana was afraid Rampage was getting lonely, so he cut a ton of guys to keep him company?

Rampage came to hump reporters and do his own thing.

Rampage is all out of reporters.

Fitch the person + Fitch who fought Silva = Awesome Fitch.

Never been a Fitching Fitch fan but fantastically fond of fighting Fitch.

It's the fact that such an amazing fighter, a legit top 5 fighter, can be cut for (I'm assuming) BS reasons.

You know what might make sense?

16 UFC fighters released.

16 fighters signed under the TUF 17 Jones vs Sonnen banner.

Its possible this is Joe Silva's solution to fitting additional fighters on the roster.

Yeah but typically only 9 guys from the TUF show will make the UFC.

The 8 winners from the Finale and the season runner up.

Give or take a few exciting/interesting personalities and sometimes a few semi-finalists.

But didn't Dana say earlier in the season that he was so impressed by all the guys that they'd all be getting a contract? My memory isn't very good so I'm not 100% sure, just that that sounds familiar.

That's some serious spring cleaning - and a bit early as well...

Some of those guys make very little sense to let go of, I guess Bellator will benefit greatly though

MMAjunkie is reporting that they plan to cut 100 fighters this year, so this probably won't be the last big name we see released.
