Ban that spammer.

On Topic, I dunno what happened to the other thread, but they also said that Urijah Faber is next to be cut if he loses on Saturday. Shocking.

I remember him saying that but I'm calling BS. Dana was in the heat of the moment and spewing out garbage for most of that rant. Faber is the only big name in that dead division. Not only that, but he's a pretty good fighter too. BW can't afford to lose Faber.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Yeah it was more of a broad statement that anyone that doesn't win there next fight can be cut. Also if you aren't finishing fighters then no matter how many decisions you win then you can get cut after 1 loss. Pretty much more anti-sport shit IMO. Drives me nuts.

What on earth has someone being British got to do with anything?

You realise Sass and Etim just got cut right? With pretty much zero bitching?

I'm a bit gutted to see Nunes go, but he's gone win/loss/win/loss/win/loss in all decision fights. I'd of liked to of seen him get another chance, but it seems Zuffa are merciless lately.

I thought he beat Kenny it is too bad he got cut but he is good enough to make it back in short order. They are cutting 100 or so guys some good fighters are going to get cut.

It's a frustrating shot from a frustrated poster, nothing more really. I'm just sad at the thoughts of the majority here.

If you aren't on the roster you don't get your medical paid for while training (injuries, premiums, etc.) This is just the UFC micro managing, I am sure a lot of the top guys will be back.

Me and KRY were all over Sass's nuts on twitter during UFC:London and I dont think either us has made a single negative post about his cutting.

At the end of the day if these cuts make fighters fight their ass off instead of trying to take the easy route to a decision, it can only be a good thing.

You hurt me with that. There is nothing positive about this cut and a few others this week. It's not a positive, it's not a positive message for the fighters, it's not the right thing to do. It's wrong on all levels. It's not fair to these hard working men, it's completely undeserved and mistake by Zuffa. I can't find the silver lining in this. I don't see an ounce of optimism.

Again this is a joke Nunes is a very skilled and exciting fighter who has the potential to give any fighter a tough fight on any given night. I don't know the reason behind the UFC cleaning house right now but I don't like it.
