Gerald Harris’s firing is a sign the UFC just became a tougher place to play

Speaking of Maiquel Falcao and Gerald Harris, a lot of people are upset that Harris was shown the door by the UFC following his decision loss. After all, it was his first loss in the octagon in four outings (which also included two Knockout of the Night bonuses), and he did survive an explosive onslaught from Falcao that only subsided in a lackluster third round.

Harris is taking being cut in stride - obviously he’s upset and obviously he wants to return to the UFC so he’s not going to say anything to jeopardize that. Did he deserve to be let go? Doesn’t really matter. It’s all part of the unofficial new-look UFC: for all the talk about growth and expansion, there are still only so many events each year and with the addition of the WEC’s bantamweight and featherweight divisions, it’s having an effect on every weight class. Jobs are on the line, more so now than they have been in years, and one loss can derail anyone not in the top 10 of their division.
