Several UFC fighters at featherweight and bantamweight have apparently been cut by the promotion, including Leonard Garcia.

garcia was a given. IMO the gave gave him way to many chances. the only one i was a little surprised was sam sicilia. i thought he would get one more chance, oh well.

Well, it was a good, money making run for him.

Last few days the Ufc has cut like a fourth of their featherweight roster.

No big surprises. Though Sam would get one more fight

"Self explanatory" next to Garcia, that's funny.

Holobaugh should have been given another fight. Siler is no slouch and he took him to decision. It was all even after 2 rounds as well.

I don't think Sicilia should have been released already. I think he's got a lot of upside. Maybe Joe Silva/Sean Shelby want to see some improvement.

Justin Lawrence maybe came into the fold a bit early in his career, but i certainly see his future in the UFC. He's still only a kid......

Holobaugh i thought would get another go. He hung with Pat Healy and that says a lot after his recent performance.

FINALLY. Garcia could easily be something like 0-12 in his last 10 fights. He's looked that bad, seriously.

I was surprised to hear about Cravalho though. Shame. I like his style......

OUTRAGEOUS! I can understand cutting Fitch. He sucks. BUT LEONARD GARCIA!!! That bro bangs with the best! Dana White must have shot up a lethal dose of marryjewanna before he made that decision.

Hate to say it but he deserved it, he looked like trash against McKenzie.

I'm surprised they cut Lawrence. He's one of the best strikers in the division, I hope the bring him back soon

Ya it does....kinda makes perfect sense though. 3 in a row is tough to excuse.

Its just so frustrating. Before Hioki Bart was being talked about as a title contender, now he needs to earn his way back to the UFC.
