    Except for Terry Etim.

  3. Todd says:

    Wow! I thought Che Mills was on an upcoming card!

  4. Adam says:

    Che mills, Jay heiron, john fitch, matushenko, and Terry etim are still good fighters. i’m sure fitch, etim, and mill will be back.

  8. Thom says:

  12. korean jesus says:

    dana the fkn nazi white.

  13. Diddy says:

    Boy you guys complain about everything… Fitch is a snoozefest from a camp that Dana doesn’t like… Clearly he gets gone… Jay Hieron is one of the most overrated fighters in the UFC…

  14. 123 says:

    terry etim, paul sass & che mills?.. plus he fired paul daley, he is harsh on british fighters, in my opinion dana white needs.. brad pickett, ross pearson & jimi manuwa to be the poster boys for the british fans.

  15. Ddddddd says:

    Not a bad idea to send Fitch packin to a different organization where he has a good chance to make their 70pnd division to boring to watch

  16. Mayor of Deviance says:

    Man a lot of the UFC on Fox 6 guys got cut. I would still like to watch The Janitor… And I can’t believe Jorge Santiago is gone AGAIN after a short notice fight loss.

    Only good news is I don’t have to be bored by Fitch anymore. Okami just needs to lose one now.
