Same here.

I'm sure someone will get injured and be out a year.

Hip-Hip-Hooray! Hip-Hip-Hooray!

I knew today would be special.

They should get rid of all the other "blankets" as well.

I know what you're saying but I don't think he deserved to be cut.

Meh, he's 1-2-1 in his last four. He's going nowhere fast, and his style isn't exactly fan friendly. Guys only get to stay and become gatekeepers, if they're exciting to watch. Nobody will spend a dime to see Jon Fitch fight. I totally understand the decision. He doesn't exactly have a great history with Dana White, given all the AKA bullshit that happened a couple years back.

Jake Shields will find himself in a similar situation, if he doesn't start to step it up a bit, and Clay Guida better take notice as well.

I get it, but it's still shit house. He is a pretty talented MMA fighter. His mostly ground game, but so?

Dropping him is shit. I hate that White cunt.

It's not shit though. What does he do for the sport, other than put fans to sleep? Especially now that he's losing.

I don't expect everyone to be Anderson Silva, but the guys who just blanket their opponents to a decision over, and over, and over again, need to realize that it is a spectator sport(IE a business), as well as a competition, and the UFC are not going to showcase guys that make the sport look boring. Especially now, with the FOX deal. They have to up their game.

That being said, the real problem is how fights are judged. A takedown equals, and more often than not, completely negates a round of dominant striking. A fighter could hit a guy 100 fucking times, but if his opponent gets one or two stinkin' takedowns in the round, the takedowns get the 10-9. It's absolutely retarded.

If the judging system was changed, you wouldn't have these blanket fighters.
