when was the last time a superbowl or world series contender was put aside to allow the more marketable yankees to step in because it would generate more views? say what you want about refs being bought out and shit but just imagine if last years nba finals spurs were not allowed to play the heat because they werent an "exciting team" and instead they let the lakers take the place of them because it would sell more tickets. What you are talking about "adding more games" to the season thats apples and oranges compared to how real sports operate and how the ufc operates.

This fucking organization is turning everything we loved about martial arts, NHB and vale tudo into shit. This is something else... Just another money machine.

Hopefully he gets picked up by One FC and put against someone like Melvin Manhoef or even Mizuno.

I understood the Fitch release, he won 1 fight in three years and people have always hated his style. Then when released he got put to sleep in like 40 seconds, so that made it seem even more justified.

But Okami was just riding a decent win streak, beating Belcher and Lombard, and lost to a future title challenger. This is horseshit. Really wanna hear the explanation on this one. He wasn't even THAT expensive, he wasn't even making 100k WITH his win bonus. Fitch was making around 120+ with his wins so again, he was pretty expensive for what he was bringing to the table.


well, i still think the Fitch cut was stupid... he was ranked #10 at the time... but he was in quite a slump, so i don't think it was far off.

Okami's cut is absolutely idiotic... the claim that the roster is full is obviously BS, as people have complained for years that the MW division is the weakest...


how an organization cuts a ranked fighter is beyond me.....

Said the roster is packed, what a joke when Uriah hall is middleweight and has even worse performances yet gets gimme fights and put on one of the biggest cards out. Bad move Dana hope you are lashed heavily about this. Phone Post 3.0

BW92 - Sucks but he's expensive and consistently either puts on bad fights on main cards or loses to the other top guys. We should have expected it more tbh Phone Post

it is truly saddening to see this happen.

Dana owe us a proper explanation, this is wrong on so many levels.

There were good arguments to let Fitch go, Okami, not so much.

Man......I've followed the UFC since UFC 1.

 

After UFC 9 I was bored to death and didnt watch again till Royce came back to fight Hughes ......

 

I've watched every PPV the UFC has put out since Royce Vs. Hughes (I thought for sure Royce would pull a submission outta his ass like he did in the early days) ........but Damn!

 

These guys have changed and lost their ways ........................

 

 

 

I think it's finally time to stop watching the UFC.

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Best of Luck to you Mr.Okami! You showed great heart and that Bushido Warrior Spirit!

 

WAR YUSHIN THUNDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hinrik - do you want to call this a sport or what!!?

the fitch and volkmann cuts already showed that the ufc is a fucking joke. i might actually stop following this shit(ufc and mma in general), it makes me sick
I don't really understand how cutting Okami means that MMA isn't a sport. Phone Post

It shows the sport is more interested in being about entertainment rather than being a legitimate sport. Imagine if alex smith got cut for being boring. Similar shit.
You don't think certain athletes in other sports get drafted, signed, traded or are let go because of how well they can sell tickets? Why did the NFL and NBA changed their rules in the last 10 years to help offenses? Why is the NCAA basketball tournament or the NFL wanting to add more games?

Sports are entertainment and money driven. Phone Post

Yeah thats why tebow replaced alex smith, oh wait. They have integrity.
It takes a lot of integrity to decide to contend for a Superbowl instead of getting the top pick in the draft next year. Generally teams that are better make more money.

But there are also plenty of owners who are content to not spend any money and continue to be very mediocre. Remember when the Suns were really good with the 6 seconds or less offense? They let Joe Johnson leave and got rid of Luol Deng, Rudy Fernandez and Rajon Rondo because the owner decided he would rather save his money than have the best team.

I know it sucks and the UFC is no exception and I hate that Okami and Fitch got cut. But it in no way means MMA isn't a sport. Phone Post

What a bunch of scumbags.

3-1 in his last 4 and a former title contender.


Is this a sport or a fucking circus?

Not even an Okami fan here but this is pathetic.
