Dana released him because he's black.

This is MMA baby, you are only as good as your last fight.

Truth is, they need to make room for all the WEC guys they absorbed. Get used to it, because it's gonna happen a lot more over the coming months.
that and the fact that if you can't make dana money, you ain't gonna be around ... he could potentially let brock go for his last outing, but he knows he can still squeeze a little bit more before brock has been used and abused

That's ridiculous. Brock has beaten top 10 fighters and former UFC champs. Just because he got his ass handed to him in 1 fight doesn't mean that he isn't still a top 10 fighter.

right, that is what i am saying .. JB said you are only as good as your last fight .. i was just taking it further and saying, you are only as good as your last fight AND if you can't make dana any money ... since brock can still fill seats, he will be kept around ...

oh right...sooo...he keeps Anderson Silva on...why

There is nowt wrong with being black, almost a third of my favourite fighters are black

Besides...on the crudest of levels...he's got to keep investors in people, so that he can appeal to their market....Havent you noticed a rise in Orientals...at a time when the UFC said they are hoping to expand east from Europe.

I still say it might have been a quota cut...and he might have been chopped because Tyson Griffin was more worth while keeping.

I agree, it would be ridiculous to let Brock go, and of course they won't do that.

However, Gerald Harris didn't get a title shot in his third fight in the UFC either...
