The UFC has released Kevin Burns, Edgar Garcia, and Shane Nelson following losses at UFC 107.

In addition, Darrill Schoonover was released following his loss at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale. Also, the UFC has confirmed the releases of Marcus Jones, Justin Wren, and Houston Alexander, which have been reported earlier.

I thought Wren would do well but his performance against Madsen wasnt good. Out of all of them he is the one I thought would have done better.

I was only impressed by 2 fighter's on that whole show and they were in the Finale, I already knew who Roy was, Brenden looked good but I think he has a possiblity to go LHW, either that or he needs to put on some serious weight (30lbs).

Most of them aren't surprising. Burns was something like 1-4 UFC, Titties got recalled by the military, Jones reportedly just retired, Alexander we knew was coming, the rest didn't catch me off guard.

Wren I thought should have stuck around.
The rest is understandable.

I'll admit Jones retiring disappointed me just a little bit. I understand the supposed reasons (family and also injuries from his NFL career) but despite his losses in TUF and at the Finale he was showing some solid potential.

Burns was 2-3, and he just about beat Chris Lytle...

Edgar Garcia...now thats a strange one. He lost a very controversial split decision to Blackburn...and he destroyed Darmarques Johnson...until the triangle.

I wouldn't mind seeing James McSweeney getting the axe.

We already have one Michael Bisping in the UFC. I really don't think we need another.

I hate him too he came off as an arrogant prick on the show. I was glad when Roy beat him especially after how cocky he got during the fight.
