UFC roster space is at a premium like never before. Jon Fitch – arguably the third greatest welterweight in UFC history – was a high-profile casualty this past week as officials confirmed they'll be trimming their their roster by a hundred or so fighters.

That made for some nervous fighters at Saturday's UFC 157 event, including Matt Grice. But though the fighter lost for the second time in his past three fights (and fell to 2-5 overall in the organization), his job is safe...

So this is Dana simply reinforcing the attitude that he wants everyone to swing for the fences instead of being tactical. What a joke.

Kinda makes you wonder why he ever let Jorge Gurgel go, right. I mean, that dude was always willing to bang

What a stupid comment.

I always used to defend this guy but I'm starting to think he's bad for the sport.

Making it more WWF every day.

Why on Earth would you bang with a guy thats defeating you in the stand up? Isn't this why we don't like Andy Wang?!?

Brandon Schaub stood and banged...and loss...so he decided to take him down...good for him.

I know a lot of you guys are taking this as Dan saying swing away & let bombs land, but I like to think he is referring to the heart each man showed; not their technical skills. Atleast I hope that's how he meant it

what about the heart that Fitch showed with Maia on his back for 12 minutes? Any lesser man would have tapped

If there's one thing that Fitch never lacked, it was heart. The grit he showed over and over was crazy. Maia would have tapped almost anyone else and I think Erik Silva would have tkoed or subbed a lesser man
