    And another one bites the dust. MMA Bulletin just posted it.

    Bummer for sure, one of the most exciting guys on the roster. Rizin probably offered him way more.

    UFC are really tightening the purse except for the proven draws.

    Wow, Gucci is one of the best contenders in that division. He still has great matchups available like against Cejudo, Benavidez, Dodson if he drops back down etc.

    It almost seems like they are fading out the FLW division. That is a lot of cuts for a weak division.

    New owners probably offer contracts based on Twitter followers. New UFC screwing up left and right

    Which makes no sense. So, you are not going to pay a fighter, on top of that, he can't bring in his own sponsors, even worse, when he is matched with the UFC's favorite fighter, he is not going to get promoted, and he is not allowed to bring in his own promoter.

    The UFC wants fighters to fight for free, and it is not good for the sport. Fighters need to make enough money to do nothing but train 365 days. They need to be able to afford evidence-based sports medicine training, and not bro-science.

    The next evolution in the sport is better training, and the UFC needs to invest in it.

    I can only imagine the offer WME gave him.

    Probably 10k and a gift certificate to Sizzler

    Holy hell.

    They let larkin, Misha C., Kyoji, Perez, etc. all walk...what the hell are they doing?

    CUT THE BAD FIGHTERS AND PAY THE GOOD ONES YOU RETARDS LOL.

    They cut multiple top flyweights, might as well scrap the division. They clearly only care about the stars (which is gonna hurt them bad in the longer run imo)
