Edgar Garcia is a bit of a surprise to me. He looked good in his last fight and simply got sloppy and submitted. Other than that I won't miss any of them.

The guy has all the talent in the world yet he crumbles under pressure. Maybe a wake up call like being released would motivate him.

aint gonna miss any of them. the ufc is a premier organization and gets to choose the best fighters. some just cant hack it. schoonover came out at TUF 10 looking fat and out of shape. obviously not taking it seriously

Schoonover has to go back to active duty, so it doesn't really matter either way he wasn't staying in the UFC. I think this is a good think for him because he's still young and could hopefully get a few fights a year if he continues to train and build up a nice record...he's already 10-1 and only 24 yrs old...if Titties takes it seriously I think he could be a very well rounded HW in 4 years.

Garcia as much promise as he was supposed to have coming over from the WEC w/ a TKO win over Miura. He lost his first 2 fights in the UFC, and usually that gets you the axe. I also think they expected him to beat DaMarques and they would cut him but the opposite happened, oh well...like any fighter that gets cut, go to smaller shows, rack up wins and comeback. It's not the end of the world.

Poor Titties, now we wont get to see rampage shut his mouth. I would of loved to of seen that match happen.

Shame for all the others as well, Edgar was pretty much gone from the company as soon as that choke was locked in.
