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

Dana promised every tuf contestent from the current season would fight in the ufc. Joe Silva told him it was impossible. Dana retorted they would find a way to make it work even if they had to add additional fights on cards.

Nothing official has been announced. I would guess this is their solution.

Man, I did not see this coming. I can see why they cut most other fighters on the list but Fitch?

Not a big Fitch fan but he's only on a 1 fight loss streak and totally murdered Silva.

They're cutting fighters to make payroll room for women, flyweights, and terrible TUF fighters from the 7 different reality shows they are running. Which is why I dislike the 125 and women's divisions, and TUF.

Seriously this is embarrassing. Cat Zingano is a UFC fighter and Jon Fitch is not. Fitch could very well still be a top 10 WW and he is capable of giving everyone outside of GSP and Maia a good fight.

I still put Fitch solidly in the top 5-7 WWs.

Looks like Bellator is about to get a bargain.

Never thought Fitch would be cut. Dude has been in the UFC for a long time and if I remember correctly at one point he had one of the longest winning streaks.

I was expecting this to be a hoax.

The flyweights are easily the least burdensome division from a financial standpoint. I tend to agree with you about all the TUF they run though.
