Only way he was staying is prolly if he won or was in a good war.

I'm guessing he can't go to Strikeforce though.

Not really much of a surprise here. Either If he won or lost against Belfort I still think he woulda got cut. It's a shame though

Good luck keeping your sponsors while getting fired, choked out, and cussing out MMA fans Anthony

I think AJ will be spending the summer at fat camp with Tony Perkis.

I'm not real surprised to be honest, he came in overweight on numerous occasions after being warned about it. He's a great talent with no discipline and a shit attitude about it all. I mean, he was overweight as a WW, then moved up and was even MORE overweight as a MW and then says everyone can suck it cuz they don't know what's up.

Seems fair enough. If they do decide to give him one more shot (Which is entirely possible), I would like to see him go up against Mayhem.

My guess is he will dominant the small leagues while figuring out his weight, find his way back to the ufc as a replacent and earn a few more wins. I'll bet if he can figure out his weight and a earn a few dominant wins tons of fans will jump on his bandwagon again.

He needs time to mature as a person, let alone as a fighter.

All bashing aside, I laughed my ass off when someone called him Crumble. Yes, this guy is a physical specimen who needs to figure some things out, but that's hilarious.

I think he goes there or Dana makes him fight 205...I would give him that option...
