My Bad, wasn't sure if UFC firings were news or just general chat
4/19/09 6:49:07PM
Yeah, but man those were some cuts i tell ya.

Sucks that Boetch is gone although i`m sure the same could be said about most of these guys.

Well Sell had a couple big setbacks, so I can understand that, but i have no idea why Boestch, or Grove got cut. Both of these guys were powerful and exciting. Grove had big power, and so did Boestch. Guys in the UFC cant afford two losses in a row anymore. They are running a tight organization.

Cant say any of these fighters being released surprises me. the UFC is cutting the fat and only the elite stay. They are looking to run the top orginization hands down. No room for losers. Its a harsh reality.

Not really shocked, to be honest. Expect Ryo Chonan and David Bielkeden to join those ranks in the near future.

The Brian Cobb cut seems a little premature. Cobb took a fight against a very tough Terry Etim on very short notice.

Sad to see Boetsch go, but I saw that one coming. The light heavyweight division is too good for anybody but the best to survive with two losses in a row.

Jason Day gets a rough deal with the UFC, seems like he's an event booty call.
