What BS. It's this that makes the UFC look more like "sports entertainment" than sport. Phone Post 3.0

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

Consider yourself a retard/bad business-man. Phone Post 3.0
Just wanted throw in: Dana is a fucking retard for isolating the JMMA community.

So just wanted to make it perfectly clear: Dana White is a fucking retard. You'll never get a PPV buy outa me. 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

"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

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

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

I was just thinking how the UFC hadn't done anything mindblowingly stupid lately.


Nah, they gave 200,000 to the Nevada gay an lesbian center a little while ago.

That was an investment, soon the gays and lesbians will be a key demographic for the ufc and it will grow the sport to new heights! People will not even talk about tuf and the boom of new fans that followed anymore, it will be the sparkle boom, and they will make our sport fabulous.

Soon? Who do u think GSP's fan base is?

Dana has always claimed that he's honest with the fans and the media..."sometimes too honest", we've heard many times.

If that's truly the case, just come out say that Okami isn't marketable enough in the US because of his fighting style and the fact he doesn't speak English well. It doesn't make sense from a business perspective to pay this guy what we were paying him, because there wasn't enough return on our investment.

"Our roster is packed" is nothing more than a cop out.

Our roster is packed...with people who cannot beat Okami? Cutting a #6 ranked fighter makes no sense. Dana needed a distraction so that everyone would stop asking him why Gustafsson is not getting an immediate rematch.
