    Default Fitch cut for not signing video game deal.

    Unreal they cut one of the best fighters in the world in a power play.


    It now looks like Cain Velasquez and Josh Koscheck will be cut as well.

    Bullies. Pimach, I think you said it best that they are putting all their fighters on notice when they dumped War Machine.

    UFC likes to dictate terms - I imagine the royalty sharing is non-negotiable (if I remember correctly, with the toys, the UFC got 80% and the fighters could not audit them to verify their 20% share) and this, like the toys, is a lifetime deal. Totally unreasonable to ask young guys to sign their image away and to retaliate against them when they don't comply.

    I imagine they are able to use his loss to GSP as their way out of the contract even though he was scheduled for an upcoming fight. It makes the loss of the other organizations that much more hard to swallow.

    Tough choice for Fitch, but the right move. The next thing the UFC would do is want the rights to your first born child.

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    AKA is getting the axe to be shown as an example for not agreeing to the terms.

    Where is Adolf and Zapp and the eternal Dana can do not wrong crowd? I'm curious of their takes on this.

    3 wrestlers and one is one of the guys dana "will never forget" for being on TUF 1.

    Many believe that Cain has serious potential and in Koscheck's case, he just did the UFC a big favor in taking Diego's spot against a very dangerous contender (who had just taken out Karo and Hughes)

    The UFC doesn't seem to fear bad press all that much. Dana's made so many things public that other companies would not have commented on.
