Quote Former welterweight contender Jon Fitch was among the 16 UFC fighters who were released from the promotion on Tuesday.

UFC president Dana White also confirmed with MMAFighting.com that the following fighters were also let go: Wagner Prado, Mike Russow, Jacob Volkmann, Vladimir Matyushenko, Che Mills, Jay Hieron, Terry Etim, Paul Sass, Jorge Santiago, Mike Stumpf, Simeon Thoresen, C.J. Keith, Motonobu Tezuka, Josh Grispi and Ulysses Gomez.

Each fighter was coming off at least one loss in his most recent fight.




Expect to see Fitch join Couture, Shamrock, Greg Jackson and co. as part of the Anti-Dana brigade in Bellator anytime soon.

There's at least half a dozen small-time MMA promotions that are now giddy.

Yeah, Fitch is going to be recruited by Bellator hot and heavy.
All props to LoveSongWriter
