Yushin Okami was, and probably remains,
one of the best middleweight mixed martial
arts fighters in the world. But the UFC cut
him, along with lightweight Mike Ricci.

Not upset about Ricci. He wasn't anything special in or outside the cage.

Super nice guy and stoked to have met him!
he just hasn't looked great in the UFC. I'm sure with some time outside the octagon, he'll be able to rack up some more wins and hopefully get back some day

It seems to me Dana and Co. just want that whole TUF season 16 to go away. The low ratings, the uneventful fights and the fighters. I can see the winner, Colton Smith, getting cut after his contract is up. I was also surprised Igor Araujo was signed. Tbh I don't see him hanging around all that long either. 1, maybe 2 losses and done.

If the UFC can't get at least a few really promising prospects for EVERY season of TUF, then the show probably needs to end. Its already served its purpose. I don't really think that is true, though. There are many very exciting fighters on the way up in every division. I wonder if a lot of them are hesitant to do TUF because of the format (terrible living conditions for serious athletes in training) or other downsides.

TUF 16, in retrospect, had zero fighters that are likely to ever be top 10, and most of the better ones that they did have are not exciting to watch. I won't be sorry to see either Ricci or Smith be outside the UFC.

Well we know that DD won't be getting any action for a while since Ricci will need comforting from his bf

Ricci was always underwhelming and overated and his three UFC fights against Smith, Freakshow and Jury were all very painful to watch. I wont miss this guy or his metrosexual style.
