14 fighters cut from UFC roster
A long list of fighters has been removed from the UFC website following release from the organization.
The most notable name’s are Hatsu Hioki who entered the world’s largest mixed martial arts organization with high hopes and even more hype. Hioki would go only 3-5 in he UFC with those three wins coming by way of decision.
Also on the list, Canadian, Ryan Jimmo, who was very critical of UFC President Dana White and the organization for whom he was employed. Jimmo would often take to social media to express his feelings and it seemed that even if he found a way to continue winning, they would have cut him anyway as they were not seeing eye to eye.
TUF 20 Veterans Lisa Ellis and Jessica Rakoczy will seek employment elsewhere as well as TUF China winner Zhang Lipeng.
Luiz Dutra, Josh Sampo, Justin Edwards, Robbie Peralta, Wendell Oliveira, Nolan Ticman, Dhiego Lima, Andrew Todhunter, and Bentley Syler also made the list of fighters released.
Todhunter never even had a fight as he passed out recently while making weight.
