It looks like the UFC is clearing up space from their packed roster with the apparent release of another four fighters.

None surprising here. All guys aren't quite at the level at this point.

Guys like this aren't ready and in the meantime tons of talent needs to be snagged: Askren is a big one! Just massively talented fighter rotting away in Japan...

It's a tiny step in the right direction, There are only 2 fighters debuting at the next UFC and 4 were cut. Good stuff, but I actually like Houston and Shimuzu. Ah well... They deserve to be cut.

Houston was going to retire (at 4-0) because he couldn't get any fights. That's why UFC signed him. I hope his UFC exposure will help get him fights now. He's still green but he has a lot of raw talent. I thought he beat Hot Sauce in his last fight, it was really close, Smith is fighting Thales Leites next and Houston got cut!I just don't like people being cut for split decision losses in fights that could've went either way.

Shimuzu is better off in Japan where he can be exciting without getting wrestle-fucked. He was never going to make any waves in the UFC.

They're almost at 500 fighters now and still adding divisions. I think they need to make a B league or something.. I miss the WEC / UFC days. That was prime Zuffa IMO.
