Got to remember the contract only holds Sakara to the UFC not the UFC to Sakara. The UFC is trying to hold so many cards they need fighters to fill in and mid level fights can save a card when there exciting even when headliners fail to give it.
Exactly. He could just as easily be gone the next fight if he loses or has a bad fight.
Isn't it supossed that UFC signs only A level fighters?
And definitely personal issues involve the decisions of who should get cut and who should not.
Some fighters are cut after 2 loses (Some of them after only 1 loss). Others can lose 3 or even 4 fights in a row and are still in the roster. And not all of them are so damn exciting, look at Dan Hardy for example.
But whatever, this is not surprise at all. Same thing happens with title shots. Some people win 4 fights in a row and are not even title contenders. Others receive a title shot after zero fights in the respective division. So whatever...
