Can't disagree with any of them. They'll make good additions to smaller organizations. for trimming fat.

Give it a week or so. All of these are from 143 and the Fuel card, right?

And of course, Ray!

I think it's time for Akiyama to get his walking papers.

The only fighter I lament being cut is JOE. He put on a good war with Herman, and I think Russow is just as much to blame for the snoozefest that was their last fight . The HW division is thin, I would've like to see him get one more shot. Oh well.

Not surprised or have any gripes with any of those names.

Red just doen't can't take being hit anymore, he looked good at the start of his last 2 fights, soon as Simpson and Rivera started hitting him, he shelled up.

Weird that Rocha isn't given another shot. Sure, he got KTFO but he isn't the first and hey, it was against a TUF winner. Only other loss is to Cowboy and he went three rounds with him. Whereas a guy like Steve Cantwell is allowed to lose 5 in a row after running his mouth and causing controversy.....

I was thinking the same before the Shields fight, but he seemed to preform alot better at WW. I think he's earned another fight.

Dude has yet to have a tune up fight in the UFC. He came over and immediately was up against the wolves. When does the UFC ever throw a guy like Vitor Belfort at you on a two fight losing streak?

Belcher, Leben, Bisping, Belfort, and Shields. Pretty damn good list to be losing to.

I think as long as he keeps putting on exciting fights, he'll be in the UFC. This is not a case like Steve Cantwell, where a couple losses in a row earns you a cut. He deserves to stay in more of a way than Alexander deserved to after losing several straight.

He's fighting at such a high level, but I think for once, he deserves a tune up.
