Some big names in there, some of which I expect to see back in the UFC by the end of this year/early next.

Is this real yeah?

Sad to be Terry Etim and Paul Sass cut. Fight is a strange one as well, not his biggest fan but didn't think he deserved to be cut.

Makes no sense really, as Fitch is without a doubt a top 5 WW in the entire world. Sure he might not be the most exciting guy around to watch, but... released after a decision loss to Maia? Hmph, must be something more to the story.

OMG there is so much talent on that list! WTF! Makes zero sense.

Fitch was dominated by Maia, but not finished like Story. His fight before that against Erick Silva was epic! I call bullsh*t when Dana says he doesn\'t dislike Fitch.

Fully expected Grispi, and maybe Sass...but COME ON!!!
