In addition to the earlier reported release of Eliot Marshall, UFC has also released Shannon Gugerty. He was 2-3 in UFC but his UFN on Versus loss to Clay Guida gave him the dreaded "losing streak of doom" as well as dropping him to 1-3 in his last 4 fights. All his UFC losses, as well as his 2 wins, came by submission.

The UFC should not consider losses to top guys as a reason to cut someone. I think they fed Gugerty to Clay, after Sherk was injured, to give Clay an easy win.
The odds on this fight showed that Gugerty was a huge underdog, and I think the matchmaker messed up on this one.

He might've survived if he didn't lose his prior fight and/or if that loss wasn't to Terry Etim.

Guida isn't a top guy. The UFC throws him a bone once in a while because he's the perfect jobber to the stars. I have nothing against Gugerty, but I don't think he belongs at the highest level of mixed martial arts.

They should cut Brandon Veras half ass. he has dropped three in a row, and his 2nd last fight against randy was just embarassing, he did almost nothing

this loss is actually his 2nd loss in a row. before the razor close decision loss to randy he had just come off of a couple dominating wins over soszynski and patt.

safe to say vera will be staying put for now but a win will have to come much sooner then later if he's going to stick around for long

your right it is 2 in a row. but still, the only good opponents he has ever beat, was a fat frank mir, and krystof. and he totally half assed that fight after hurrting krystof badly, he is the most boring striker i have ever seen. he is 7-5 in the UFC losing 3 of his last 5 fights. He should be cut, and if he loses his next fight he better be cut. Cause me and probly countless other people are tired of of having to watch Him on main card, and even worse, main events.

Cagepotato says the cut Elliot Marshal as well. I am not sure either should have been sent packing.....but thats the nature of the beast. If you lose, lose excitingly????!!!
