"I'm gonna be honest with you, I don't like Duffee's attitude. I don't like his attitude and I don't like some of the things he's said or done.  He made it seem to me that he doesn't want to be in the UFC, like being here didn't matter to him and he didn't like it. You don't want to be in the UFC brother? Okay. We're working on long term stuff, where guys can live and fight under this brand forever and continue to make money, even after they retire. Being in the UFC is a very big thing for a fighter. Some guys 'get it' and appreciate it and some guys don't. The guys that don't, I don't have time for -- and you won't be around for long."

UFC President Dana White comments on the surprise release of heavyweight up-and-comer Todd Duffee. The talented but ornery rookie set the division ablaze with his record-setting knockout win over Tim Hague, only to go belly up after a KO loss to Mike Russow just a couple of months later. Any chance he shows up in Strikeforce? And what kind of adjustments does he need to make to have a career in the fight game?
