Dana tries to justify the Fitch thing but we have this Paulo Thiago still hanging around. Fitch beat Thiago,Paulo is 1-4 in last 5 ,3-5 in last 8. If ever there was a non relevant fighter,this is it. Truth is it is all about money,no matter what Dana says.The only reason this guy is still here is the same reason they brought That HW Brazilian back,to fill the hometown venue with local fighters.
Dana was talking about Fitch and his rating.He says Fitch was dropping in ratings,then he goes into a literal TIRADE trying to disrespect Fitch. Instead of looking at ONLY Fitch look at all the other guys Dana keeps that are rated far lower and not even remotely relevant.Case in point this Thiago guy is so far out of the mix,he is a total non factor.
Dana then tries to cover his **** using other names like Tito/Rampage ,those guys are big money draws,it has NOTHING to do with relevance. Then Dana goes on about being in shape,how many guys does the UFC still have that are in terrible shape.Fitch's conditioning can NEVER be questioned. How about Edgar he has an IDENTICAL set to Fitch,actually worse,he has lost 3 straight fights and guess what,on the way down.
