Who Will Be Cut/Gone From The UFC Roster by the end of 2014!

I'm just going to rattle off some marquee names who I think may get cut or retire. There's a huge influx of fighters and I don't recognize all of em like before.

Frank Mir can still fight, but he's definitely on the ropes. It's too bad because I really enjoy watching him breaking peoples' arms while seeing him get his face bashed in. It's quite a contradiction.

Big Nog most likely retired.

BJ Penn if he loses to Edgar again.

Tim Boetsch will be cut.

Brenneman will be cut.

Sexyama might be cut if he loses again. Hasn't fared too well.

Hope not, but Wandy might retire after his bout against Chael. I really don't know why he still fights. Guess he loves the adrenaline rush.

Hendo.

Wow! Come to think of it. I'm almost certain the golden era of fighters will be retiring within a year or so. Writing this just made me realize how surreal that is. No more Sandstorm...no more sunshine.

btw: Did Colton Smith or whatever his name is get cut already. TUF winner.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

That list is pretty much spot on.

Nate 'TRT Bitch' Marquardt... To be honest I don't know how he still has a job. After his constant bitching and moaning and then getting brutally KOd twice within 3 mins.

Hopefully Shogun, Hendo, Wandy, Penn, Big Nog, Mir and any other old fighter that only fights for the money and puts on lame fights now(sure I missed some others).

You gotta take into consideration that anyone that the UFC forces out could potentially wind up in Bellator. So I think the UFC might be a less likely to send big names to other organizations.

I-ya,
I against I,
flesh of my flesh,
and mind of my mind,
two of a kind but one won't survive,
my images reflect in the enemies eye,
and his images reflect in mine the same time

Biggest "shock cut" - TJ Grant, I think the concussions are going to finish his career either through his camp or after his next fight.

Biggest Retirement - Alan Belcher, I think we all know who the no duh's are when it comes to retirement (Franklin, Silva, Nog) but I think this is the end of the road for Belcher.

The welcome to the WSOF - Rafeal Cavalcante, I think even though the division is at it's bare bones I believe Feijao will be sent to the WSOF this year.


Make the WW division great again

I was thinking the same, but they'll look whether or not the salary or headaches are worth the fighters' staying like Rampage. He was an aging fighter though who complained incessantly. That did him in. Then there's Kongo of course followed by Shields, Fitch, Toquino, and Okami.

I'm beginning to think that it is a great time to be a bottom feeder. The UFC is fairly stacked all across the board which means the feeder orgs will get their share of
discarded fighters.

That's a pretty solid list. Didn't even know Kid Yamamoto was still on the roster. Thought he was cut awhile ago after losing three consecutive and interestingly enough to Lee and Uyenoyama.

Stout might be in danger which is really sad for his entire team. Might be best to voluntarily move to another org if he wants to continue or retire gracefully like his team mate. They were never quite the same after what happened.

Gray is an interesting pick. What happened to him...it's like he mentally shut down. At one point he was pretty unstoppable.

Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Mir will be fine. I really doubt they'll give him yet another top guy after losing to 4 in a row now. They'll probably give him a Gonzaga or Rothwell.

I'll go with Mike Easton and Nate Marquardt.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.
