Jon Fitch among 16 fighters released from UFC on Tuesday

Quote:
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.

Each fighter was coming off at least one loss in his most recent fight.

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

Is this real yeah?

Sad to be Terry Etim and Paul Sass cut. Fight is a strange one as well, not his biggest fan but didn't think he deserved to be cut.

Really surprised to see Fitch released, kind of meh on the rest of them though.

Makes no sense really, as Fitch is without a doubt a top 5 WW in the entire world. Sure he might not be the most exciting guy around to watch, but... released after a decision loss to Maia? Hmph, must be something more to the story.

Maybe they tried to get him to renegotiate his contract because he hasnt been looking as great recently (although that is probably related to the guys he has been fighting) and he wasnt having it.
