So the UFC decided to let me go because of my statements after the death of Evan Tanner. They tried to make it look like I was insensitive towards Evan and that that was the reason I was being cut. In all honesty my bulletin regarding Evan was bashing the UFC and the way they treat fighters and not negative to Evan in any way. if anything I was sticking up for Evan and the way he was mistreated by the UFC just like the vast majority of it fighters. Anyway, since my bulletins and all the bullshit being talked about on the underground several of Evan Tanner’s close friends and family members have been in contact with me. 99 percent of them were not mad at all and pretty much let me know that they knew where I was going with the whole bulletin and for me not to worry about hurting any of them directly. SO yeah one of his close friends just messaged me a few hours ago and let me know that the UFC sent NO ONE to speak at his funeral. He let me know how much this saddened the family and how very disappointed they were about it all. This is an EX CHAMPION of theirs, NOT some scrub that fought for them once and thats it. Are you trying to tell me he doesn’t deserve any of the UFC brass’ presence at his funeral? Doesn’t deserve a single kind word or statement of gratitude for the services that he provided their organization?”

It sounds like someone has been sending War fake info just to get him riled up.

Sucks for him to be cut like that, but you just don't talk shit when you don't have pull I suppose.

I like War Machine, but I think he is lacking in the common sense department. I mean, I'm all for Freedom of Speech. But don't be upset when you have to deal with the consequences for your actions.

Yea really, where does he expect to get treated better? The fact is the UFC puts A LOT of money back into the business to keep it growing right now, once its a major sport the fighter's money will come.

War Machine shouldn't be burning bridges like this with the biggest and most successful MMA organization. Currently the UFC is the best option for keeping your fight career active for a long time and making decent money while you do it. Matt Lindland came to realize that not long ago. It is unfortunate that War doesn't understand that just yet.

I agree with everything said so far...but c'mon, couldn't one UFC representative go to the funeral?

buddy u got cut cause u suck... what war's doing right now is trying to flip the death of evan tanner to his advantage as an excuse why the UFC cut him while attempting to demonstrate that the UFC has no class or respect towards it's fighters. War my friend, you have absolutely no class, let Tanner rest in peace.
