UFC is a very politically charged company. Guys who cross the line are always punished somehow, some way.

T in the article it mentioned "Fitch fought and lost to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 87, he is 1-2-1 in his last four fights and has a reputation for putting on grinding, slower-paced fights. Jacob Volkmann and Mike Russow have the same reputation.", are the guys being let go cos they are boring? In boxing that one loss and you can be dropped clause comes in handy for the promoters if they want to flush the toilet to get rid of dead weight. If you are an exciting fighter and are popular it really doesn't matter if you lose, Arturo Gatti was an example is that the same for MMA guys?
