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

The players you mention got traded to other teams within the league. You arent adressing my point at all if you were youd realize how different the situations are. Its why i brought up tebow, just because he sells jerseys doesnt mean that Jacksonville will take him over a more competent quarterback because of that.

i also bring up the integrity of the structure of how games are played and what it means to win and lose and make it to the pinnacle of each respective sport, and its not based on how exciting it was, in any of those leagues. Its just not comparable how different this is.

Ridiculous decision to cut him, but I won't miss him. Gotta be the fighter I least look forward to watching. Never goes for the knockout, just grinds out boring decision after boring decision. Phone Post 3.0

Bullshit decision. Not a fan of his fighting style at all, but he did not deserve to be cut. Would like to see if it was contract talks, or why.

Bellator will not pick up Thunder. He would wrestlefuck Alexander S. They already have issues with Askren at WW. And as another poster said, if he signs with Bellator, that is crossing the rubicon and he won't be back in the UFC. Phone Post 3.0

It's was probably a money thing and not to mention okami's hasn't evolved with the sport his striking looks bad and should be a lot better considering how long he's been fighting and the level of fighting he's at. I feel bad for the guy but at the end of the day it's business plain and simple. Phone Post 3.0

Shows how quick the UFC will turn their backs on a fighter. Leading up to his fight with Silva, Dana talked through the entire promo about how he thought Okami was the top fighter to ever come out of Japan.

It's sickening. Phone Post 3.0

Maybe UFC is doing this to see how other fighters in different orgs deal with okami, if they win, UFC should pick them up. Doesn't help that his style isn't the most exciting too. Phone Post 3.0

Guys, Yushin is on the down side of his career. He'll go to Bellator or WSOF, he'll do great there.
And before you even ask: No, he won't get choked unconscious by Josh Burkman. No worries. Phone Post 3.0

Wow... And people wonder don't see MMA as a legitimate sport. No reputable organization would fire a guy ranked in the top 10 of his division because their roster is "stacked". If it's stacked why not start by cutting people at the bottom of the rankings... oh that's right because the UFC are a bunch of selfish, penny-grabbing assholes!!! So mad right now. I hope the company goes bankrupt. Phone Post 3.0

AlexinTO - "When you're a gatekeeper who could derail other prospective challengers but won't ever challenge for a title yourself, your time in the UFC may not be long these days. "

And this is a major reason why it is not a real sport!
When less than 5 people. An decide your career based onL PPV sales it will be a fringe sport a best. Phone Post 3.0
It already is a fringe sport but I agree it will stay that way. Legitimizing the sport or the company does not mean cutting top ten fighters. That's a dead giveaway that wins, losses and longevity mean nothing. It's decisions like this that contribute to the sport looking like a boxing/pro wrestling hybrid to people unfamiliar with the sport and it's history. Phone Post
