Despite suffering his third-straight UFC loss, Fabio Maldonado (18-6 MMA, 1-3 UFC) will fight again in the octagon.

At Saturday night's post-UFC 153 press conference, UFC President Dana White said the 32-year-old Brazilian will not be released from his contract.

"If we cut that guy, we deserve to be beat with a stick," White said...

I for once agree with Dana.


Fabio showed absolute pure heart. Sucks he was on the wrong end of the fight


Here's to him bouncing back with a win

His skill level is good - just not as good as Glover... glad he won't be cut. At-least not yet...

Good call both on not cutting Fabio and getting beat with a stick.

Someone needs to create a PG account for Dana White so I can give him props.

A delightful little double standard. While I don't want to see Fabio go as much as the next guy, but I get sick of the inconsistencies.

Herman absolutely deserves to be cut, 3 losses in a row all stoppages.. Plus the fight Nog, He did absolutely nothing except stand there with his arm stretched.

I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that Maldonado is never the same after that fight. If he makes a quick turn around, I think he's getting KO'd in his next bout.

As for Herman, his game plan made so little sense, I'd almost say he bet his rent on Big Nog. He was inviting Nog to land his power punch by standing like that.

He should be cut. Cut and ripped and 185.

Maldonado vs Kingsbury, loser gets cut. Both guys took a huge beating in their last fight and kept coming back for more. FOTN contender for sure
