Jon Jones thinks so. "That's absolutely insane. ... You know a lot of times when you get booted, I think it's because of guys not being team players. The UFC likes guys who show up on time, they're never late to their appearances, they don't give people in the offices a hard time, they don't give too much of a big fight when it comes to contract negotiations; they like guys who are team players. Maybe he wasn't being a team player. I mean, three knockouts and one loss and to get booted, there's definitely something more than performance. ... There's more to the story."

I think that Falcao should be cut and not Harris. He comes in on his first UFC fight and totally stops fighting in the 3rd round. Then he has the odacity to say that Harris tapped 3 times and he hid it? What a piece of effing garbage!

They can't can a guy for performance reasons following a win...but I know what you're saying.

I don't know Falcao fought a hell of a fight for 2 rounds while Harris did very little, I don't think they should cut either guy. Falcao just fought a boring but smart round in the 3rd I can't really blame a guy for taking an easy win after being robbed on the sub in the 1rst. As for the phantom tap, who knows guys do do that a lot and it's pretty hard for us to tell. So I don't think it's fair to call Falcao a peice of garbage, just like you can't call Harris a cheater.
