UFC welterweight Jon Fitch was released in a flurry of cuts along with 15 other fighters in the organization. Not all of the fighters received word of their release by the promotion before Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting broke the news, so UFC president Dana White wanted to explain his reasoning for releasing the fighters following the UFC 157 pre-fight press conference.

Disclaimer: Dana White uses profanity in the interview. If you’re sensitive to vulgar language, you should probably ignore the video.
