Wow. That's pretty bullshit. Fitch is 14-3-1 in the ufc and they release him?

Pretty fucked up to release a Ufc vet in Fitch
Despite losing two of his last three fights

Etim and Santiago I thought would have one more fight
Also Gomez as well

Sad day in Ufc

Seriously?! How can they cut Fitch?! This is bullshit!

I'll never forget my first Ufc event.
Three names I wanted to see fight most
Liddell shogun and Jon Fitch
Ufc 76 knockout. Hope he bounces back but thanks for the memories. Diego vs Fitch was stellar

Wow, I'm not a Fitch fan, but that baffles me. He's going to do well wherever he ends up.

Moving ahead and getting oppurtunities in the UFC has little to do with skill or merit. It sucks seeing the premier MMA promotion moving towards the entertainment umbrella and further away from the sporting one. More and more unwarranted title shots, roster cuts and additions that make no sense.

Lesson learned, make sure you glad-hand Dana like he's Tony Soprano, unless you have 'PPV $' stamped on your forehead, you can be cut without any justification.

It's disgusting how they did Fitch like that.... very sour and I'm not realy giving many fucks what goes on in the UFC anymore... Gomez gone too.... must be because 125 is such a stacked division... Pff

This has seriously pissed me off! How can they cut Fitch and expect people to believe they have a complete roster?
Regardless of how harsh or low you rank him he's still top 10. He's only lost to GSP, Maia and Hendricks and I'd put money on him beating Hendricks if they fought again!
I can't find one top 10 WW ranking with out Fitch on it!

What the fuck is Joe Silva and his group of chumps thinking?
Who are they going to replace him with? A TUF guy? Hype up Alves again? Maybe Silva who he just beat in one of the fights of the year will take his place?!

Regardless of if you like his style he's top 10 and deserves a place in the UFC and cutting him for a loss to the two guys who are talked about as the number 1 contenders is a joke! Especially when he just beat an up and coming guy like Silva!

This has seriously pissed me off! Fuck you Joe Silva!

EDIT: cowcatcher, sorry if that seams like its at you I have no idea why I quoted you! You're still beautiful in my eyes!

Fitch cut? WTF? I guess they really wanted him gone. I have a feeling he will be back

Bellator is the real winner here

I'm hoping he goes to WSOF Ray Steffo seams like a cool dude and Fitch (a top 10 guy) was only picking up about 45k a fight.

the 1st thing that crossed my mind is that Fitch must have turned down a Condit or Ellenberger matchup for 158 & pissed Dana off. not saying it's right. just the only reason i can think of as to why he would get cut
