    I don't know why he was cut, never understood it, but he's not boring and neither is Maia.

    Your thread is boring.

    The one that lost is better. thanks for clearing it up


    They're both horrible for money side the business. They clear seats that were bought to watch other fighters.

    Between his less than exciting performances as well as a high salary (75k/75k) it was enough to let him go, according to the UFC. Was his contract up with them? That's a serious question, I don't know.

    Edit: It says he was released.

    Shake Jields is one of the greates WWs of all time, beat the current WW champ, the current MW title contender and most of the current WW top 5.
    Dana couldn't deal with it and was angry because he derailed some hype trains.

    His cost to entertainment ratio was too low for the UFC. He's still a top 10 WW and could be top 5 given the right fights.

    I like Shields and would rather he still be in the UFC, but he wasn't exactly dominant in the UFC, his results were mixed.

    If gsp weren't around shields would have been champ. He was cut because bs reason of never going to be a contender again, which is BS because a third of the ufc roster is now filler fighters who'll work for cheap.

    He's not exciting, he's expensive and he can beat almost every ww, that's why he was cut
