Not Cain this was bad enough when it was Fitch but Cain Velasquez is an amazing HW prospect who destroyed Jake O'brien in impressive fashion.

If Swick was cut I would cry so I'm glad he wasn't cut but god this is horrible.

Also does anyone else see Koscheck making some big statement if he beats Yoshida?

Yeah, and if/when he does I will have a new level of respect for him.

I don't understand why he is cutting good fighters for something so minor for the company yet big for the fighters. Fitch is 8-1 and has beaten most of the best in the WW division, and then went to a 5 round fight and lasted against GSP. Cain seems to at the very least be a SOLID HW, something that the HW division is lacking. Koscheck has been putting on some pretty good fights recently(ever since that Sanchez fight... *shudder*) and with the exception of losing to Thiago recently, was thought to be one of the next contenders.

Affliction/DREAM must be soooooooo happy right now. Affliction could theoretically pick up Cain and Werdum, and Dream could pick up Kos and Fitch.

Cain is someone I'm actually worried about. It's tough in this current MMA for young prospects at Cain's level.

I think Strikeforce is where he should end up. Maybe have a fight or two and then go against Overeem.

In a weird parallel this happened in Poker a few years back between some players and the World Poker Tour over pretty much the same thing- a freaking video game and signing away your own likeness to a company to do whatever they wished with it.

This is getting more and more crazy and is turning into a very dark day for not just the UFC but MMA. Yes these fighters can move on to other orgs. but to see them getting screwed by the UFC is very sad indeed.
