Seriously, WTF Zuffa?  Gotta let Ariel know before the fighters?

 

Sorry guys no idea on my status with the UFC yet. I haven't talked to my manager, so maybe they told him before the report came out.

It seems pointless to cut a flyweight when the division is only what, 15 guys? Phone Post

Simmer down.  He said he hasn't talked to his manager yet.  The UFC shouldn't be contacting the athletes directly anyway.

Why?  They always contact them directly when they're in a pinch and need help with a fight?

I doubt that.

 

 

I suspect most of the time when Dana says 'we called fighter X' what he really means is 'we called fighter X's agent'.  It just easier to say they called the fighter.  Agents would be pitching fits left and right if the UFC was contacting their clients directly and offering them fights without going through them.  Joe Silva doesn't call Koscheck, Fitch or Swick directly.  He calls Zinkin Entertainment and says 'I've got a fight for one of your guys'.

I'm quite certain you are correct, Steve.

Although i wouldnt be suprised if UFC went to the media before contacting anyone...


I think its more of a lazy manager issue. If he was notified in any way before the press, I would fire my manager for not being on top of his shit enough for me to have to find out I was cut via the news.
