I was just screwing around on Sherdog today and noticed that Jason High only had 1 fight in the UFC. I found that odd considering most fighters get another chance. I also thought of Gerald Harris of course. So what I am asking you is what other fighters deserved another chance in the UFC?

He's a stud, wins over Mein, Mach, and Mullhorn is pretty impressive.

I know this probably sounds retarded, but if Kevin Randleman got with a good camp, then he'd be a tough fight for a lot of lhw's

Sean McCorkle



I don't really think McCorkle falls in this category just yet. He was just released and signed with Bellator. I imagine he'll be back with a couple wins relatively soon.

Still not sure why Gerald Harris was cut.

He went 3-0 in the UFC before losing once and then they cut him. ?? Was there something else going on that I'm not aware of?

Not sure he'd really go anywhere in the middleweight div., but cut after one loss? I can think of many others that have hung around for quite a while after numerous losses... I just don't get it.

Same here. I mean Jardine finally got cut after losing like 4 straight I believe. Irvin finally got cut after losing 3 or 4 straight, though he probably should've been cut before that.

Obviously he is back in the UFC now, but I couldn't ever figure out why Werdum got cut after he got KTFOd by Dos Santos. Prior to that he had won 2 straight over a very game Man-bear-pig Gonzaga, and Brandon Vera before he turned into Captain Disappointment.

Id take Marquardt over Daley to come back any day.
