UFC President Dana White has confirmed that former No. 1 welterweight contender Jon Fitch is no longer with the organization, and his harsh criticism of the American Kickboxing Academy suggests that other fighters associated with the team -- including Josh Koscheck and Cain Velasquez -- could be out of UFC next.
White said the American Kickboxing Academy and its fighters are refusing to work with the UFC on issues including rights to names and likenesses for video games. He told Kevin Iole of Yahoo:
"We're looking for guys who want to work with us and not against us, and frankly I'm just so [expletive] sick of this [expletive] it's not even funny."
Koscheck is scheduled to fight in the main event of the December 10 Fight for the Troops, and it's not clear whether this dispute will affect that fight, or Koscheck's future with the UFC beyond that fight.
