    How do I make images on this new forum!?

    As far as making images I'm not sure.

    But if you want to post an image you do this < img src="image url" > and just remove the spaces between the < and >.

    I agree with some of the cuts but some of them were also unwarranted. You should add another pole option.

    If Dana is really concerned about exciting fights and not just quick money, he should consider a rule change.

    Eliminating elbows on the ground would force guys to posture up to throw strikes. It creates space for sub/sweep attempts and space to escape back to the feet. It would keep fights from getting stopped due to cuts as easily. And most importantly, it would make it much tougher to LnP and force more restarts due to inactivity.

    If something is wrong with the sport, don't change the players, change the game.

    clicked i enjoy being bored, because this thread is a real **** troll.

    1 there are more considerations than your fapometer
    2 you are talking about real people lives in a flippant juvinile way. dissing dana is a troll, but dissing 100 fighters isnt?
    3 its a stupid pointed question

    most importantly, there is a real danger of legit fight styles being marginalised and oestracised, extraneous to the rules.

    eliminating elbows is a bad idea imo, instead they should add kicks and knees to downed opponents. removing elbows to downed opponent would just result in lay n pray with nothing at all happeningand elbows can be lethal from the top position.

    What I like about reading your posts is that I need to refer to a dictionary to find the meaning of the new words which is rarely used in other posts. Flippant,Ostracized , .. . . Do I agree with most of what you are trying to convey? No , but you have some new points of view which are not trivial at all.
    It is not about win or lose, it is about heart. Leave all you have in the Octagon and you are a winner in my book.

    I wouldn't say he is... Just because he cut Fitch doesn't mean he's cutting them all...
    Fitch is slipping down the rankings & gets paid too much for a prelim guy... That's why he was cut.
    Don't expect to see Sonnen or GSP cut anytime soon!

    I don't mind ground fighting at all - in fact, I even think some of Fitch's fights were somewhat entertaining *ducks*. I really enjoyed the Maia vs. Fitch fight, even though there was very little "action" in it. On the other hand, I hate Colton Smith, the boring lay 'n prayer who won the last season of TUF. Hopefully he loses two or three straight and gets cut.

    There has to be more going on behind the scenes in these cuts. I'm thinking it's a move to force contract renegotiation (especially in Fitch's case), especially if the fighter wins a few elsewhere and comes back to the UFC. Fitch might make it back to the octagon, but it won't be at his current compensation structure. Even though Gerald Harris was cut after a bad performance and loss, he had put on a lot of exciting fights before that. He didn't deserve to be cut after just one defeat. Then we have the Dan Hardy, Leonard Garcia, and Joey Beltran factor. Some fighters have terrible records and stay on the roster.

    If someone can explain to me how Shields still has a job and Fitch doesn't, I'll stop complaining.

    They're both 1-2-1 in their last four and Shields has a failed drug test and makes more money

    He made it perfectly clear that STYLE has NOTHING to do with it.
    This simply has to do with MONEY and nothing more.Those that are not relevant to the title AND carry large contracts are deemed of no use.You will still see losers and cans just to fill in the holes for events,guys making 5-10k a fight are obviously deemed useless by their reluctance to pay them of anything meaningful..

    Fitch wanted too much money and valued himself to highly.
  • zaksamezaksame Posts: 4,340Free
    The part that makes Dana look like a complete idiot is when he said Fitch can win two fights OUTSIDE the UFC and come back.SO he is saying in one sentence that Fitch is no longer relevant ,on the decline ,but if he wins a couple fights OUTSIDE the UFC he becomes relevant again??...shakes head and this guy is the PRESIDENT LMAO.

    Your right. They should cut Shields too. His most impressive fight in the UFC was against GSP when he outstruck him.
    On November 16th Hendricks became the real undisputed champion.
