Notes:
In total, 16 fighters cut.
Of the 16, 8 were from the WW and LW divisions.
8 fighters did not have a single win during their run in the UFC (this does not include previous stints).
4 fighters (Fitch, Mills, Santiago, and Volkmann) were cut after 1 loss. Of these 4 fighters, 3 lost in decisions.
Probably the most important fact: every single fighter here fought and lost on a 2013 card. This is happening while many Strikeforce fighters are being signed and moved into the UFC.
