As has been a theme for much of the year, another six fighters appear to have been trimmed from the UFC's rosters.

I can understand the cut of the younger guys. I think its just to motivate them. Once they start winning again, I can see them invited back.

Maybe as far as Vermola, maybe he will work on his cardio! Lol

wow Pat made it...he seems like a cool guy and great potential, but he just never seems to unleash..I feel like every fight of his could be his last if he loses

I agree with most of those except for Burrell and Silva. Burrell is 1-1 in the UFC and Silva took a fight on short notice fighting in a weight class above his natural one against a guy who 3 months ago made his UFC debut at 205 lbs.... oh well, guess cuts need to be made and these guys were just at the bottom of the pecking order. Not really too sad to see any of them go, just don't necessarily agree with the above two.

Surprised Burrell got cut. He lost by Dec. The Dec was closer than you think. Barry. Made it for now.

Good. None of them are UFC caliber. Plenty more to go, though. Tired of seeing Strikeforce Challengers (or worse) level fighters in the "NFL of MMA"...basically almost the entire undercard in every UFC on FUEL event.

Still a huge fan of Anthony Lionhart Smith, he got put against killers on the ground and got caught twice. No doubt he'll work on his jits and be back.
