When I go fishing and throw out bait I am sure fish will be biting... I sure as hell do not complain when they bite. Your posts are deleiberate and of the Troll nature; you are getting what you asked for. And when you get the Ban and remember you have asked for it in every thread you have participated in. Ones head should always be farther from ones ass if you do not like unpleasant smells

As I said in another thread, I believe it to be a bit of a dirty tactic by the UFC to renegotiate Jon's contract. Fitch will go to a lesser organization, win a fight or two, and the UFC will bring him back at a lower pay rate.

Why couldn't you have just posted this as your initial response to the OP? I'm not trying to get into some heated debate, I've had enough of them lately, but the way new members are treated on here is quite terrible.

The OP raised some good, valid points about this entire ordeal and he also did in the other thread he created.

He's obviously pissed off at how the UFC have cut Fitch, as are lots of people, and that was evident in his OP. But that still doesn't dismiss the validity of his points.

Instead of people discussing the topic at hand, he's instantly greeted with long time members throwing jibes and cheeky, unnecessary insults at him. Why not just respond to the OP at hand and address some of his points like you did just then.

One of the downfalls of this website is the ability to attract and keep new members. Any time a new member posts a thread and uses a few swear words, long term members instantly see an opportunity to shoot them down and bait them into stuff knowing full well it will be fun to get them banned.

Regardless of how passionate he was about the situation, his points were still valid and relevant to the topic, but instead of discussing the topic we have members throwing cheap insults at him knowing full well he will react aggressively in hopes of getting him banned.

Shut the **** up.

My God.

He's clearly a troll.

I like how you feel the need to defend him just because you share his terrible opinions.


The sort of person that would cry and stomp his feet about Jon Fitch of all people, and not be his cousin or girlfriend, is some antagonistic hipster akin to that old poster who had the Thing as his avatar that is the only person to ever make my ignore list after getting tired of his constant shitposting. It's just people looking for something to complain about because they have some sort of childish vendetta against the UFC.


You have no idea what the business model for a combat sport like this is SUPPOSED to be. Because it's never been done before. The closest thing is contracts in boxing where fighters get dumped and sign elsewhere on a constant basis.


I'm always blown away how any incident can send a "fan" into some ridiculous tirade about pro wrestling and delegitimizing the sport.

My honest opinion is that they cut Fitch because it was more profitable for a talented guy like Fitch to go to another promotion than to fight in the UFC, I think it was a mutual decision and both Fitch and the UFC were happy with it. The WW division is so stacked right now you really gotta sell yourself, and for Fitch's careers sake it would be better for him to go to another promotion, whoop some ass, become champ, make money, and then come back to the UFC.
