link Todd Duffee’s recent removal from the UFC was down to his “attitude” according to UFC president Dana White, although he says that technically he was cut because of a clause in his contract that allowed him to be dropped if he lost a fight.
vidlinkmmaweekly This also talks about Efrain Escudero.

Dufee struck me as a problem employee. He was always "injured" and couldnt fight, always asking for more money(without fighting, and would say ignorant stuff on the internets.

I think Dana is right about Efrain Escudero too. There's a few TUF winners in the UFC that seem to think they are made men and cant be touched. Efrain being released sends a message to those guys, Dont take it for granted!

I can see this thread turning into a "Dana is Hitler! Blah blah" very quickly.

I am glad I didn't approach him at the airport
He looked pretty sad holding his big pillow ready to board our plane

Maybe they both bought into their own hype. I think they were good up and coming fighters but neither has done anything that impressive IMO. I think Efrain was maybe let go to soon but attitude is very hard to change and usually if its a bad attitude at the start your better off without from my experience.

I'm pretty surprised about Duffee. I must have missed any of his comments to the media. Does anyone have any links to anything he's said that Dana is referring to?

Escudero was released because he didn't make weight. Dana probably would have given him an easy-ish fight despite the two straight losses, but not making weight sealed his fate.

He probably would, but Brock Isnt quicker than Duffee.

Brock is agile as **** for his size, but hes not quick at all. He's more fast than quick.

He must have really done something bad because Danas dealt with the likes of Tito Ortiz but thats probably because Tito actually has drawling rate where Dana has more of an upside with tolerating tito.
