What happened “Big Pretty?”

So the UFC has done the silliest I’d things before. They recently relocated an entire event across state lines on a week’s notice because Jon Jones couldn’t fight in Nevada, they continue to give Charles Oliveira tomato cans like Nik Lentz to destroy, and they.. yep, cut a guy because they couldn’t agree on a date to fight.
That’s right: Justin Willis is no longer with the premier MMA promotion because he and the company could not come to terms on a DATE. This is a guy who recently co-mained in UFC Nashville. While it may not have been a good looking fight, he still was on it and many would agree he was deserving of the chance. A guy who is 4-1 in the UFC in a heavyweight division that desperately needs talent. Yeah, that guy got cut because the UFC couldn’t find the right day for him to fight.
I assume there’s more to the cut than just that, but that is the information we have been given. What a weird move, UFC. I’m sure that Willis will be okay, but I can’t wrap my head around this one.
