There it is, confirmation from the big boss himself, Lorenzo Fertitta, that Dan Hardy will not be cut following his fourth straight loss. The UFC won’t give you an infinite number of chances, but this further proves that if you consistently fight like a warrior and put on a show for the fans, you will get more chances than most.

In other news, Dana White has awarded Chris Lytle (and Dan Hardy for the former) the Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night bonuses in addition to a brand new Harley for his thrilling performance and finish in the final fight of his career. Each bonus was worth $65,000, and Lytle’s now won 10 for a grand total of $515,000. Lytle told MMA Nation’s Luke Thomas recently that all his bonus money was going towards his kids’ college funds. If that’s the case, all his kids can go to college and still have plenty of money left over for beer.
