The nature of the beast... Sorry Jon Fitch but not really!



Everyone is all riled up since the news that the UFC cut 16 fighters today most notably Jon Fitch, I say this should have happened long ago.

Fighters get comfortable and complacent and that's never good for business when your business is fighting.

Jon Fitch deserves to be cut and not just because he's lost 2 of 3 but because he's lost 2 of 3 in a really bad way,along with the fact that he's more often than not a boring fighter to the casual fan, and with the six figure income he demands I feel its just the right time for his release.

The UFC is in the fight business and the fight business is about entertainment , this is not the olympics .Most of the guys cut today are gatekeepers at best, including Mr.Fitch and the UFC has plenty of those to go around.

Guys like Fitch are a dying breed in MMA. No showsmanship no $$$$$$$. Especially when you are losing and losing at your own game!
