Just an update on that last post: Gerald Harris was indeed fired! I guess that just goes to show you that even a 3-1 record with two KOTN awards won’t save you during the current purge period.
i would say fire all of the fighters from the last 6 seasons of tuf, the ones still fighting.
Quite surprised. Then again, Dana is apparently serious about cutting guys that aren’t busting their asses. Falcao coasting on a 20-18 lead makes some sense – Harris doing the same down 18-20 doesn’t. Hope he comes back.
the guy could have just thrown the towel and everybody would have been better for it.
wonder if his getting choked out would have changed things…
Should have cut Machida instead.
I bet forest won’t get cut after rich franklin makes him ESCAPE FROM THE OCTAGON: THE MOVIE
What the fuck?
SF and Bellator are going to pick up some great fighters if the UFC is keeping this shit up.
I just got a text explaining that it was because Gerald Harris gave someone within Zuffa the crabs.
I think that slam KO made us all block out the memory of the Harris – Dave Branch fight being fucking awful up until the final seconds. While we make .gifs, somebody at Zuffa must keep actual notes on the fights. Now they get to use them.
he isn’t a lw, this makes little sense
CRM–>I thought I was the only one remembering that Harris is PRETTY FUCKING BORING.
He had a four fight contract. A couple good moments, but I don’t see him making it to the top of the UFC’s 185 Division.
Not the best, or the worst cut for the UFC. He could make a run at the Bellator, or Strikeforce title to make it back into the UFC.
in all fairness he got his first kotn by default (it was the only ko on the card) and the fight itself was horrifyingly dull
I don’t know why some people are thinking this has anything to do with the WEC merger, just because they have a glut of guys at LW doesn’t mean they’re going to start purging guys at other weights for no good reason.
What this DOES have to do with is the Mir-CroCop and Marquardt-Okami snoozers. This guy just became an example for others to learn the fear of God from.
I was riding Harris’ nuts pretty hard before the fight, but after that pathetic performance, especially but not exclusively in the third round, he doesn’t really have much of an argument. He’ll regroup and smoke some cans. If he doesn’t sign with Strikefarce or Bellabroke, he’ll be back in a while.
And agentsmith, the merger has a little to do with Zuffa being quick with the pink slip. If you count the overall Zuffa shows, they will have up to six less cards in 2011 than they had in 2010 due to the WEC shows falling to the wayside. So they have to either put more fights on every single card, let people wait longer between fights or fire a bunch of people. I don’t know if they’re gonna up the number of fights per card, it’s too soon to tell if layoffs will be longer but they certainly started kicking guys to the curb they might have kept before the merger. Regardless of weight class.
Of course, your chances to be cut are even higher at 155 because it is, as of now, insanely overcrowded, but Zuffa is clearly looking to trim fat in all divisions.
they should cut dan hardy.
^beautiful, oh oh far. These feelings of hot loin lust. Floral boner pleasure. Masquerading depravity. Warm cooling comments, spammer disease bountiful, caressing shaft joy pleases my mind. Dirty thoughts. Dirty. spread wide equally amusing their able to still make horny posts love-fuck. Season has changed from sweat palm ass crack moisture…now fightlinker fueled by zombie spammer gang. Strong and thrustful, buttocks quivering fortitude. When can they be vanquished? Til this day, boner outrage, soft to hard, hard to soft, relieve the pain tension.
^now this is out of context..great
Happy Thanksgiving Harris. Dana’s a fuckin’ prick.
