i truly dont understand them keeping AA but we have no idea what either party wanted
tito might come back, although i doubt it but his huge fan base is reason enough to keep him, plus he is a great test for fighters in the division (yes, i implied he's a gatekeeper)
din thomas is uber talented, im sure he'll be back if he stays healthy
Based on what I read and heard, I think it came down to money. AA probably wanted more than he was making now and figured as a former UFC HW Champion he could get more than he was, he'd been making something like $50-100K per fight.
Of course I wouldn't mind Tito returning but given the bad blood with Dana I can't see it happening as long as Dana runs UFC despite Tito supposedly being on good terms with the Fertittas. Of course never say never, but it would surprise me if it happened.
