I think Grice is the perfect example of this, he went out balls to the wall trying to finish the fight even when he was nearly out on his feet a few times... so even if he loses his next outing in a similar fashion would Dana cut him or not?

I agree its a fighters job to try and finish the fight at all times, often when two evenly matched fighters go at it with this attitude it produces great fights even if they are unable to finish each other... going into a fight hoping to get a points win, saftey first is a shit attitude to have but with the cuts I can understand why people would do this!
