I think it's probably good for Wren and Garcia to go elsewhere and collect some wins.

Edgar deserved another shot. But, I'm sure he'll be back. If not the UFC, then Strikeforce can definitely put him on the map. He's got that "always shows up to fight" style.

LMFAO so much fail anti-UFC pussies in this topic."Waah waah I can't believe they released *unworthy UFC fighter*, TOTAL DICKS. Dana doesn't care about *fighter who needs more fights outside the UFC*, I hope SF gets them where they'll be treated right. RIGHT."Go cry in your Pride pillows.

this looks like a better card than UFC's new year event.

He's not a UFC caliber fighter, and I don't want to see the UFC keep fighters out of pity.

Releasing Schoonover was a total dick move by Zuffa. Sure the guy is not the most talented fighter ever but it would have been nice for Schoonover to know that his employer had his back while he was deployed and had something to come home too. Schoonover is more of a warrior than any current guy with a UFC contract. Total dick move by The UFC.

that XFC logo looks a little too much like the vintage UFC logo. I'd expect a C&D letter from UFC, Esq.
