Fitch Back In UFC!!!

Here's the link!



Quote:
“Communication kind of broke down with Dana (White) so we talked with Lorenzo,” Fitch told MMARated. “(I) just got off the phone with him and we came to an agreement. We’re going to move ahead and I’ll be back in the UFC. We’re going to sign off on the video game and I’m back. It was never even about the agreement or the contract. It was the approach that we felt Dana was being a little bit hot-headed and was threatening us right off the bat. It didn’t seem like a professional way of doing things.”

I'm sure that in Dana's mind, his plan worked perfectly.

We just got a glimpse of the future, fellas.

I hope everyone doesn't forget how Dana acted in this matter just because it's "fixed" now.

Dana's publicly displayed hostility was ridiculous for the president of a large company. Especially for a guy that claims he's trying to "legitimize" MMA as an acceptable sport.

This kind of stuff is going to kill the sport in the long-run.

He doesn't want Barnett in the UFC because he doesn't like him. He was willing to drop a whole gym full of good fighters because they wanted to negotiate the terms of a contract put before them.

If UFC truly becomes the only MMA org out there, we will not see the best fighters in the world. We will see the best fighters in the world that are willing to blow Dana White for a paycheck.

no surprise here. hopefully white learns to take a new approach to these things... but on the other hand and as indicated above... this may have been the plan from the get go

Frank has a long history of supporting White's decisions and strategies.

Man I feel like I just got off the "I bought into the way too much drama/sensationalism rollercoaster internet fun/thrill-kill ride".

Oh well- glad to see him back and I pledge to not dive off the internet highdive again.
