Blood spilled. UFC will no longer require the services of 145-pound "Scarecrow," Pablo Garza (12-4). The 29 year-old featherweight, who bagged "Knockout of the Night" at TUF 12 Finale as well as "Submission of the Night" at UFC 129, is fresh off a first-round tapout to Diego Brandao last month in Sweden and leaves the promotion with a 3-3 record.

Wow that's surprising, I read on Joe Ferraro's twitter that Antonio Carvalho is also most likely going to get cut

Garza was pretty exciting and it's too bad they cut him.

Delivered a top 3 koty and soty and was always game and never showed a serious weakness, he just wouldn't be the best. Gotta keep guys like that around

Sad to see good fighters like these cut, and as many have said, Garcia is still active

Seriously! I think Leonard Garcia is the best name to point at when discussing this issue...exciting fights vs record...at some point it has to even out. .500 is not a good record, but high profile exciting fights should keep you around (just ask Randy Couture).

not a good move by the UFC's part. Both fighters are worthy of being on the roster.
A bit more disappointed with Pablo Garza getting his walking papers.
