Same people who gave Lombard a 400K signing bonus, Ppv cut, and 300K starting salary. Phone Post

Well, that's what happens when guy are top 5 in their weight class. Pretty shitty explanation if true. I am not a fan of Fitch's style but claiming to make the "best fights" while basically admitting you just cut someone for cash reasons shows the UFC does not have all the BEST fighters, just most of them.

Maybe Dana felt the 'value' factor was missing from the entertainment perspective?

I'm gutted Fitch has gone, his performance against Silva reignited my interest.

Hopefully a Super Broke Fitch will emerge and grace the UFC once again. Phone Post

Maybe if he cut down on his $25,000 steak dinners he could afford these high rollers like Fitch...

Funny how those guys from the "minor leagues" are so much more valuable than UFC #2 ranked WW for the past 3 years. Phone Post

fuck that.
why can't corporate executives in america ever take a pay cut before they lay off workers or give bs for not paying them more?

I'm so sick of this too expensive bullshit when these guys are flying around the world on private jets making millions of dollars.

I'm not disagreeing with you but you know how much the UG complained about Fitch. If he was on a card people generally would complain and say things like, "that's when I'll get a beer" "bathroom break" etc. People are changing their tune so fast, its wild!

For the record I don't think he should have been cut but the UG is a crazy fucking place.

Maybe Dana means expensive in relativity to what Jon brings. Not for nothing but I remember watching fitch fight when I was ordering pay per views at my ex-gf house in 2007. And 6 years later every Fitch fight I've watched looks and ends in the exact say long ass way. I'd practically time my food deliveries to come when Fitch was fighting.

If your going to want the top dollar you must bring the top entertainment. I know this is a sport and all but we have to pay 55 bucks to watch this sport.

What does Dana White's personal spending habits have to do with his business decisions as the President of the UFC?

*cues Dana White's music*


The point is if a 100k isn't a large expenditure against Whites personal wealth, than 66k certainly isn't against the wealth of the company.

Suggesting Fitch was cut due to monetary reasons is laughable.

I'm hoping he also got a ppv cut, but I suspect his recent financial comments didn t help his standing with the UFC Phone Post
