Wow, UFC really reducing roster. I wonder how many events they plan to draw down to in the future. I remember that one year that had nearly 48 events which was way too much.

I was already aware of Story,Cirkunov and larkin testing free agency......all of them are great pickups for any company.

Bagautinov,Perez,Birchak,Lapilus,Miller,makovsky,camus are all still really solid guys the rest arent bad either but these guys are the ones that are big pickups.

I know, I'm looking forward to seeing where a lot of these guys end up. A lot the global orgs. can pickup some solid fighters here.

They have been releasing a lot of fighters. I actually expect more to follow. They may be trying to get their number of annual events back into the 20's or 30's instead of nearly 50. They should focus more on the heavier divisions as well to increase the number of finishes per show.

Is it just me or is UFC in for a decline while possibly getting overtaken as number one? They seemed to be running fewer events, cutting a lot of fighters, they don't have a lot of big draws right now, and fighters are starting to seek the open market instead of just blindly signing.

^^ a sign of things to come ^^ to be honest I think the ufc has had its time on  top
personally I think no org should be numero  uno I'm not saying the top guys should not fight each other but at the end of the day it shouldn't matter what the name of the organization is .

Would like to see Bellator being in Cirkunov, Story, Miller, Mizugaki, and Seo Hee Ham.

Add ValErie Letourneau to the list. I heard GSP got a new deal, maybe clearing space for him?

No, it shouldn't. The UFC on top hasn't done much for MMA as it has for itself and it created among the most obnoxious fan base in the history of sports. Fighters not with them and other companies were regularly tarred and feathered by Dana White and followed by the MMA media who were afraid to get their press passes revoked. Anybody on top can develop a huge ego but Dana White was absolutely drunk with power.

WTF!? Horiguchi was on a three fight win streak. Who gets cut on a win streak? I think we can all agree that Rizin needs to get him. Great local talent who can be a star for the Japanese fans.

Nakita Krylov has just been cut. If this is because of GSP he must be getting one hell of a paycheck.
