    Got what he deserved. Protect yourself at all times rule or not, that is always intended to be a cheap shot. Cerrone is a classy fighter, why try to pull that isht

    I think its a bit harsh. Dana has always said that if you go out and put on a show and still lose you have a chance of staying. If its solely down to the so called cheap shot then im surprised cos i believed what kelly said to cerrone back stage about it. Also if dana cut him cos of that then why did he want to give him an extra 75k bonus for fight of the night if he was so offended by what kelly did at the start.

    bekuz they earned it. why not give it to them and punish cerrone too? that makes no sense. they had fight of the night and earned it but at the end of it Dana's obviously against cheap shots. Daley,Kelly, and thats good because that's something that doesn't have a place in the sport at all especially a big organization that prides itself on respect from fighter to fighter.

    The thing that bothers me, is the same exact thing happened on TUF heavyweights (the season with kimbo), it was the first fight I think? And he went on to have more fights in the ufc...

    There are too many lightweights in the UFC. So they cut most of them off. That UFC/WEC merge was great thing. But if you think about it, you knew that LW would suffer for it.

    And I red this from bjpenn.com:



    "

    - "there are 60 lightweights on UFC roster cos UFC/WEC merger. They are cutting to 28."



    So UFC will cut HUGE amount of lightweights.

    Wow, 28? Strike Force already have 16. I guess their divisions aren't as shallow as I thought.

    SF just dont just the majority of their fighters, mostly because they dont have a real ranking system to keep them fighting for #1 contender.

    Pure Bisping move.....



    It was a sucker punch all the way. His apology was laughable. He wasn't going anywhere in the division anyway, so good riddance.



    Have fun in SF, Kelly.
