UFC releases Josh Neer, Caros Fodor, Brock Jardine, and Jon Manley

The UFC is downsizing their roster significantly, and 4 losers from UFC 157 were given the pink slip. Josh Neer, Caros Fodor, Jon Manley, and Brock Jardine were all sent packing (per MMA Opinion), and their profiles no longer appear on the UFC's website.

Neer (33-13-1) has now been cut 4 different times by the promotion. His latest release came after a 3 fight losing streak, completed with a decision defeat to Court McGee. it'd be hard to fathom the UFC brass bringing Josh back for a 5th time.

Fodor (7-3) lost a split decision to Sam Stout on the evening's preliminary card. He is the first fighter from the Strikeforce roster absorption to be cut after just one bout.
Jardine (9-3) went 0-2 in his UFC run, losing to Rick Story and then Kenny Robertson.
Lastly, Manley (7-2) was bounced following his loss to fellow TUF 16 member Neil Magny. There are only 3 fighters from this season of TUF still in the UFC (Magny, Colton Smith, and Mike Ricci).

Anton Kuivanen, who also fought at UFC 157 and lost, was released earlier this month.
And the cuts just keep coming.

All totally justifiable, can't believe Josh Neer had that many second chances with Zuffa.

Agreed, all completely justifiable. Keep the cuts coming as far as I am concerned.

absolutely, but if he failed to deliver then that's that... He'll be back if he racks up a few good wins outside though.

I'm not complaining but I cannot help but feel Fodor deserved one more chance. I mean he only had one fight and lost a close split decision to Sam Stout.

Mixed Martial Arts fighters are coming out from everywhere this day and age and this puts pressure on those who are not doing well in the UFC to keep their jobs as a top tier MMA fighter. It's good (the cuts) because a lot more guys will come with everything they got no to stay at the top.

Favorite fighters:

John Dodson Joe Benavidez Brad Pickett Michael McDonald Ricardo Lamas Mike Wilkinson Anthony Pettis Khabib Nurmagomedov Dan Hardy Michael Page Tom Watson Anderson Silva Jimi Manuwa Alexander Gustafsson Mark Hunt Cain Velasquez

If Roop can't beat Bowles he'll probably be next.
