    Enough said. His record is not deserving or another chance.

    Deserves Got Nothing To Do With It, Unfortunately
    So called fans so quick to disparage a fighter. He may get cut regardless of why he was over weight but I'll wait till more details are available before I start calling for his head.

    I think the UFC contracts are structured as to not allow a cut unless you lose or fail a test or something like that.

    I don't think this is farfetched given the recent cuts. I think one day we might even see a guy who just won the belt cut, if the stupidity of the cuts keeps going at the current ratio.

    If Thiago was ever to be cut it would have been after failing the drug test for a second time, he is an exciting fighter, one of the reasons why I am staying up on a weekday till 3am to watch the card.

    They won't cut him if he wins, they will just keep giving him blah matches on smaller shows until his career has some sort of credible stability.

    I think circumstances like missing weight or falling a test can change that.

    Or if its the last fight on his deal they can opt not to renew it

    You can't cut a guy on a win per the contract. If he fails a drug test after, sure.

    Why? He's an exciting as hell fighter. Though he wont contend he is certainly better than most.
    I'm biased though.

    Typical Sherdog overreaction. Everyone is going to be all over his nuts again if he finishes Hamill.
