    Farewell Thunder
    Yushin Okami might not have lit the world on fire with his fighting style, but did he deserve to be cut? Everyone has their opinion if it was just or not. Unlike Jon Fitch, Okami seemed like a company man. He

    At least he will be a Champion in another org. I liked the guy and even saw him fight, at UFC 69. He had his chances in the UFC and couldn't capitalize. Maybe, Uncle Dana will bring him back after a few years? He is still what, 32, or 33? He can make at least one more run in the MW Division, imo.

    The unified rules...

    ..Or are you alleging institutional fraud by the UFC in misrepresenting themselves as an organisation promoting a sport under those rules.

    TS is a white belt with an account three years older than yours.

    And this is the best you can do as a counter point...

    He deserved to be cut because he had a cut clause in his contract? That is dumb as fuck. Every fighter in the UFC can be cut, that does not mean they all deserve to be.

    Okami seemed cool, but nobody really knew who he was or had any vested interest in seeing him fight. So at this point, he's literally costing the UFC money to put on his fights. I would have cut him too.

    My counter point is, who cares. Move on. 2 months from now, Okami's name won't even be mentioned on here again.

    Are you saying that the UFC is incapable of making a wrong decision? That everything they do is right simply because they are the ones doing it?
