Apparently being ranked top 10 in the promotion doesn't even guarantee your ass won't get cut. Poor Jon Fitch (cagepotato.com).

He was in a lot of boring ass fights over the years but Fitch v Silva was awesome and getting outgrappled by Maia doesn't seem like something that should be cut-worthy. Ah well.

After one loss? Sounds like he got into it with Dana again.

The UFC has been looking for an excuse to cut Fitch for years, and going 1-2-1 over his last four fights was apparently the last straw. It's ridiculous since he's clearly still a top-level welterweight today and is the third-best WW of all time (behind St. Pierre and Hughes).

The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

I'd say Big Bad summed it up pretty well. If you want to be 'boring' or challenge the UFC on anything ever, you best be fucking winning.

Plus from their (UFC's) point of view he's annoyingly good enough to beat a lot of up and comers while probably never being good enough to win a title or exciting enough to draw PPV buys. I still hate that they cut him because I think losing to a guy like Fitch could really help some of the young guys on the roster learn and improve, and I'd sooner employment in the UFC was based on ability rather than buy rates, but it's easy to be an idealist when it ain't my business to run.

They could have had him rematch Penn, or fight other guys we never want to see fight GSP again like Shields (though that might be the most boring fight in history).

Now he can be Bellator champ in pretty much any division.

I put Shackleford and Master of Hounds in a EX Box. Think Master of Hounds will like the distance. Just to cover I also did Shackleford-Animal Kingdom-Nehro straight trifecta. We'll see what happens!
