    But lets add a clause that says if he gets cut before the contract is up your name is what ever I want for a year. If he extends his contract, you get mine for 4 months
    Add in a provision that he has to have a losing record if cut for your clause to take effect, and you have a deal.

    I honestly doubt it. I think any big name who gets cut from the UFC and one day wants to get back, will stay as far away from Bellator as they can

    Not disagreeing with your first point though, you're right I read that somewhere as well. IMO I just believe that unless it was a crazy over payment, Fitch had no interest in potentially burning his chance to get back into the UFC

    Besides, their champ is Ben Askren haha

    I'm sure if Fitch wanted to go to Bellator it wouldn't have been an issue

    Well at least one person does.



    I don't gamble. It's pointless. I'm fine with the finger pointing and I told you so's though if he wants to go that route.

    But people are insane to not at least understand that there are a TON of hungry ass killers out there who will look to make their names off of Fitch. There's a reason not many people get the chance to come back to the UFC. Fitch has shown over his last few fights that he can be out wrestled by a black belt, out wrestled by a LW, and can be detached from reality in one punch.

    Does Fitch have the drive to be the best in a lower tier organization? I'm not sure about that. He's already stated he has been fighting for money now which is the wrong reason to fight.
    OHHHH!!!! He backed down!!! Victory goes to TheDinosour and his John Fitch love!!!

    (fun stuff. Happy Friday)

Fitch is a huge scalp, a legit top ten welter and they passed him by. Big mistake IMO.
    Fitch grapplefucked Saunders out of the UFC (I believe that was his last UFC fight) and I don't see how a Daley fight would be any different than the Kos fight, just less trash talk and less after the bell punches.



    I somewhat think he got a crooked deal from Dana and I imagine it's all stemming from the AKA issues with Zuffa about 5 years ago. Dana is a tough business man and I doubt he forgot about that.
