Dana White explains cutting Jon Fitch at UFC 157 pre-fight media scrum

UFC president Dana White tells assembled media following the UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche pre-fight press conference that Jon Fitch was cut because "he's too expensive."

UFC President Dana White spoke to the media scrum following the UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouch pre-fight press conference and addressed the decision to cut Jon Fitch:

"He's super f---ing expensive. He'll end up somewhere, and he'll come back. This is the sports business, and this is the way it happens.

"Viacom's got plenty of money. Viacom MMA isn't hurting for cash. There's a lot of other places this guy can go and make some money.

"[Fitch] will end up at Bellator or one of these other organizations and he will win a world title," he said. "He'll end up there and he'll smash every single guy over there and he'll be a champ. A guy goes outside, wins some fights, has some impressive runs and then comes back."
