    But I think its good for the fighters.

    Imagine your on a 3 fight deal and this is how you feed your self.

    You lose two times. There are so many other people trying to fight that the UFC doesn't have time to get you another match up.

    If they cut your contract you can go out and find work, get some wins, and come back.

    If I were in that position I would want my contract cut.

    You're completely right, I think the problem is a lot of people don't understand/think about the business side of things.
     
  3. I think it was silly of them to cut anyone in the 185lb division, except for Kalib.

    They need to focus on being the top tier division in MMA. The sport is too popular to keep killing all the "competition." let other orgs run their shows and do their thing, quit trying to find new stars and new talent, rather take from the other orgs using better pay and more notoriety. Offer untouchable money and make people prove themselves elsewhere.

    I think we're all more annoyed with them delaying big fights for a season of TUF than cutting all the cans that come out of TUF.
