With the recent influx of UFC talent it was only a matter of time before a few fighters got released as well. Now it appears that the axe has fallen as six fighters were removed from the UFC.com rosters.

They should have gave Roger another chance.

You can add Shogun to that prestigious list come Sat.

Yeah, none of these are very surprising. Gracie is physically in a tough position imo. He's too big for 185 and he's too small for 205. He's got talent but he doesn't have a lot of upside. With the money he's getting paid, the cut makes sense.

Wow. Gracie got paid $50,000 just to show

Benson Henderson's first 6 UFC fights got paid less than that in show money...
He's had few contract renewals, changing from 17,000 to show to 39,000 to show.
And his current contract is 100,000 to show but man that's some BS.

Yeah, that's the problem. I have all the respect in the world for the Gracie name but they are almost never worth what they're paid in mma these days.

I'm glad Pat Barry wasn't removed from the roster, even though he probably should be at this point. Luckily he's exciting, and the HW division isn't exactly deep.
