Dana White recently spoke at a media session promoting UFC 156 this weekend and revealed that all fourteen fighters on The Ultimate Fighter 17 will get at least one official UFC appearance. Check out the highlights:

On the cast: "This season is so f---ing good, and I was so happy with all the guys, I told them, 'Every one of you guys are going to fight. You're going to get one more chance in the UFC. Every guy here is going to get another chance in the UFC.'"

On matchmaker Joe Silva's reaction: "Joe Silva wants to f---ing kill me. 'It's impossible! It mathematically doesn't work.' I told him, 'Mathematically make it work.'"

On how they'll make it work: "So all those guys will get a shot to get into the UFC again. Even if we have to add one more fight on each card – however we have to do it, we're going to get these guys a shot."

So Jon Fitch is getting cut so that we can see Kevin Casey in the UFC?

 

They are doing more shows and supposedly needed more fighters and now there ditching one of the top five fighters in the welterweight division because there suppose to make room.

 

Its beginning to be a fucking joke. It really depresses the fuck out of me.

Dana & co.'s dream all along is to have a PPV with one big name fight and an undercard filled with TUF talent.

Honestly I'm wondering if this doesn't have to do with all the talk about Fitch being broke all the time.  He may have just replaced Dufee in the dog house lol.
