The stupid little song and dance continues as Zuffa tries to convince everyone that the WEC isn’t the UFC’s minor league (even though it kinda sorta is). The latest dance number revolves around the UFC releasing Tommy Speer just so the WEC can immediately pick him up again. I guess firing someone is a lot more fun than relocating them. You’ll never hear Donald Trump shout “YOU’RE DEMOTED!”, after all.
This news should also sooth people’s fears over what’s happening with Din Thomas, who was talking about dropping to 145 before the UFC dropped him from the organization. The only question now is if someone else will come along with a better offer for Thomas than the WEC is willing to pay.
