With the Strikeforce migration underway, the UFC was forced to make some room for their newest signings. The news of fighter releases had been relatively quiet over the last several weeks, but the proverbial pink slip has come for several UFC fighters today.

I'm surprised with the Urushitani release, and a little disappointed with Griggs but the rest I agree with

Yeah, a little disappointed with Urushitana being cut. No shame in losing to Benevidez and he was entertaining against Lineker.

At this point the UFC needs as many flyweights as they can get

Originally I thought well he did go 0-2 and that's normally a cutting anyway. Then I read Sparkys comment and he has a good point. I'd be interested to see his wages... It might be a case of cut, win a fight, get a new contract for less than before

No big surprises IMO as the UFC had to make room for the talent brought over from Strikeforce.
