Kendall Grove - TUF winner, Big Draw, Vastly improved thou he's no top contender he's stil young.
Rob Emerson - Just beat Kieta Nakamura which ups his stock dramatically. Good fight too.
Kyle Bradley - Took the Lytle fight on short notice which means he deserves another fight to prove himself.
David Bielkheden - Was given a "TUF"f
opponent his 1st time out. Deserves a couple of fights.
James Lee - A 185er, even if his loses his next fight he could drop to MW and given a shot.
Justin McCully - Can't recommend the UFC drop any HW's as they have none but if they ever build a HW roster McCully's 1st to go. Especially now that buddy Tito's leaving.
Keita Nakamura - Tough loss against Emerson. I'd like to see him get another shot but understand if he didn't.
Rob Yundt - Fought Almeida on very short notice earning himself another fight to prove himself.
Joe Doerksen - Always a legit contender. Not moving up any ranks but would be a good gatekeeper for new MW's coming into the UFC if they want to keep him.Per Eklund
- Don't see much of a reason to keep him.
Jess Liaudin - It's unproven how good Marcus Davis (his only UFC loss) is. No reason to drop him just yet.Kuniyoshi Hironaka
- Another Japanese fighter who's failed to preform in the UFC. He shouldn't have lost the UFC fights he's lost. BOOT!Dennis Siver
- UFC was looking to sign German fighters for whatever reason. I see no reason to keep him.
Pete Sell - Just dropped to WW. Let's see how he does 1st. Always exciting even in losses.
Houston Alexander-Exciting fighter who's proven he can win any fight with one punch. The kind of guy you keep around.
Cut- Eklund, Hironaka, Siver
1 fight chance-Yundt, Nakamura, Bradley
