    I said in my previous thread that I had concerns about Sass...

    I'm amazed that Fitch has gone he's still 4/5th in the world IMO!!

    The others don't really surprise me.

    Yeah the Fitch one really confuses me. His only losses are the champ in GSP, Arguably that hardest hitter in the div who's sparking everyone atm and Maia who's arguably the best ground fighter in MMA.

    He's 14-3-1 in UFC too.

    I see a lot of these guys moving to Bellator.

    Yeah me too. Fitch to win a WW tournament then fight Askren in possibly the most boring fight in the history of the world.

    Dana doesn't want a "grinder" like John fitch he wants fighters that excite the crowd. If you add this to the fact fitch won't get near a title shot while Gsp is the man then it makes sense. Sass was always going to be on borrowed time as soon as his ground game had been exposed. Time for some fresh blood to get a shot.
    Fuck no-gi

    It's likely no fresh blood will be brought in. They have to cut a roster of around 400 to about 260ish

    I'm amazed about Fitch aswell. Even if he was kept there as a gatekeeper type to test guys against, doesnt really make sense. It just goes to show that last weeks UK UFC was a loser goes home event
    If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

    The under card featured no one coming in off a win.
