None of this is that surprising.......Speer=lay&pray, Din will never be a contender in a stacked division, Hironaka is 1-3

after each UFC you are going to see more and more cuts i believe.. they still have alot of cutting to do once the LHW and MW of WEC come over to UFC too.

This last season didn't really produce great fighters.... I don't really care about the "fairness" of cutting Spears instead of Roman...they could cut quite a few of the newer TUF guys for all I care!!!

Now cutting Din Thomas....that is some BULLSHIT!!!!!!
I really hope he does end up in the WEC at 145....he could fight Jens again!!

I'm surprised by Din too. You can hardly blame the guy for having his knee blow out, and his fight with Neer was very entertaining and competetive. This could have something to do with the amount of time hes had in the UFC, and what his price tag is per fight though. Not sure what hes making, but I'm willing to bet its more than a lot of the up and coming LWs.

Poor Speer. All three of the guys he beat on Tuf are still in the UFC. IMO, the Ultimate Fighter Final shouldn't count as a loss when determining if a fighter should be cut. IMO, Speer is 0-1 in the UFC, not 0-2...he should be given another chance...

Also, the UFC claims they have over 200 fighters under contract and want to cut down to 140?

Exactly who are these 200 fighters...

I'd like to see Din again but speers looked like he was in way over his head I'd like to see speers in WEC and Din over at dream or something.
