Technically, Cheick Kongo is not cut from the UFC but his deal expired with the Nelson loss. He turns 38 in about 2 weeks."
And he got 70k for his Nelson fight. Like with Fitch they probably thought he was too expensive. Maybe they'll negotiate a cheaaper contract.

Too bad, with his non-improvement he would probably never get a title shot, but he was a consistent gatekeeper.
