Former welterweight contender Jon Fitch was among the 16 UFC fighters who were released from the promotion on Tuesday.
UFC president Dana White also confirmed with MMAFighting.com that the following fighters were also let go: Wagner Prado, Mike Russow, Jacob Volkmann, Vladimir Matyushenko, Che Mills, Jay Hieron, Terry Etim, Paul Sass, Jorge Santiago, Mike Stumpf, Simeon Thoresen, C.J. Keith, Motonobu Tezuka, Josh Grispi and Ulysses Gomez.

Some big names in there, some of which I expect to see back in the UFC by the end of this year/early next.
