UFC president Dana White at UFC 146Jon Fitch topped the list of 16 fighters that were released earlier this week by the UFC, many of them unaware that they were being released until it hit the media.

UFC president Dana White apologized for that happening. He certainly didn’t mean for those fighters to find out in that manner that they were losing their jobs.

White did not, however, apologize for firing Jon Fitch. In fact, he was rather fired up about all the criticism heaped on him for letting a Top 10 fighter go, explaining that Fitch was an expensive fighter on the downside of his career, and he’s running a business.

And for those that were surprised to see so many recognizable names released, get your thick skin on because there are more on the way.

“We have 470-something guys under contract,” explained White. “We have over 100 guys too many on the roster right now. The blood has not all been spilled yet.”
