I wonder if the upcoming Ea sports ufc game has anything to do with these cuts aswell ? I remember Jon Fitch getting cut for not agreeing to THQ and ZUFFA using his image for the 1st UFC game. Imagine trying to create 400 fighters and getting them all to agree to their persona being used without extra pay ! Just a thought ?
Stuff like Image rights should be included in the contract that is signed anyway so shouldn't be an issue. Most wouldn't mind but guess the ones higher up the pay scale and who are marketable would want their worth
