With its fighter roster once again hovering above 180 fighters, the UFC once again finds itself looking to reduce the number of contracted fighters to the organization.

In recent days, news has broken that the company attempted to reduce Fabricio Werdum’s salary and when he did not accept their new offer, a decision was made not to make a counter offer.

In addition to Werdum departing the organization, FiveOuncesOfPain.com learned earlier today that middleweight Jason Lambert is now also a free agent. Soon after hearing the news from our initial source, we were able to confirm the development with Matt Stansell, Lambert’s manager with NCFC Management.

I think we all had our suspicions he was going to be on the way out with his last loss...

Not a big surprise. He couldn't hang with the UFC elite anyways. One dimensional fighter, with a tendency of being winded.

He was always good to watch if you wanted to see someone get KO'd.

But you have to give him a bit of credit for actually finishing a fight by Kimura lol
