Dead Weight?
 
I thought UFC is wanting to become the most prestegious fighting promotion out there, they have several fighters with barely any fights or records under 500. What's up with that?

I feel that the organization can afford to make several cuts to their roster.

HW

Matt Mitrione has only had two fights
Zane Fraser he is 0-2 in his career
Patrick Smith is still relatively new
Jon Madsen is new as well
Don't get me started on Brock Lesnar

LHW

Jason DeLucia is 2-2
Art Jimmison has lost his only fight

MW

Trent Jenkins is 0-2
Steve Stienbeiss is 4-3
John Salter I consider new even though it looks like he has potential

WW

Matthew Riddle is 4-1
Amir Salodah is 4-2

I know people have to start somewhere, but you would not put a peewee hockey player in the NHL. UFC is NOT the place for people to develop, it is the place for people to arrive. Or at least that is what the company strives to become.

I do not think these fighters would make people jump up and buy tickets and I am not sure why they are on the payroll.

I stopped reading after you said Brock Lesnar, Dont know if your trying to be funny, or if your just a troll ;)

Lesnar is the most over rated over publicized fighter in UFC history.

4 fights and 3 wins over opponents who aren't even close to being contenders and the UFC is making him the face of the organization. Pathetic.

With that being said, he doesn't deserve to be cut. Not yet at least.

I'd be willing to bet that you just looked at the records of those fighters. You've never actually seen them fight.

This thread is just terrible!

Amir Saddolah won TUF for starters and his 2 losses are against the stun gun and Johny Hendricks both of whom could be top 5 WWs within 12-18 months!

Also Brock, Riddle and Mitrione were all given a chance by the UFC when they didn't have much experience, you can argue that they shouldn't have got into the UFC so quickly, but since all of them are stringing wins together, you can't really cut them!

Plus the likes of Mitrione and Riddle aren't exactly costing the UFC mega bucks to keep on the roster and Brock is just a cash cow!

He beat Couture to become HW Champion, and defended it against the number one HW contender at the time, Frank Mir. They were definately contenders when Lesnar beat them.

well even if they cut all those guys you mentioned, there will be other similarly ranked fighters who take their place.
what I mean by that is not everyone can be an A class fighter like anderson silva or Machida. you are always going to have the jardines, lebens and bonnars of the sport.

this is SOOOOOO weird... I was just saying to myself today how there really hasn't been a good UFC hate thread in like 20 minutes or so. Way to go out there and be on the ball! good job buddy! :thumbsup:

Mitrione is undefeated and just beat Kimbo Slice. I realize Kimbo sucks but you can't deny his fanfare or following. Why cut someone who just beat someone so popular?

Not sure why I bothered replying consider some of those guys haven't fought in years and you probably just looked at the UFC roster, where they still have Justin Eilers listed I believe, and just pulled some names.
