No suprises here.Only special circumstances will keep you in the show after three straight losses.Both fighters are tough as nails, and both are young enough to get on a win streak to get back to the UFC, but the chances of either doing that are not likely.

This really just shows the evolution of MMA.

There are going to be a lot more scrappings as more and more guys who have been training since they were younger in MMA rather than one discipline, come 'online'. The talent pool is exploding!

Bellator should cash in on the promotional work the UFC has already done for these fighters. That's Falcao, Marquadt, Winner and Howard they could take in now, all providing depth and challengers for some of the Champs there who are dominant.

Don't really care about Howard but kind of sad about Winner. He had a lot of potential. His hand speed was ridiculous sometimes. That KO he got awhile back was amazing. Shame.

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

It'd be good to see Winner improve his skills, as I felt he was kind of limited when fighting. Maybe add a bit more kicks and stuff.

Winner was doing well in round 3 of his last fight given how much of a bashing he took. He just needs to be more aggressive from the get go.

That's the magic word: "HAD"

I hope they find a place in Strikeforce.
The WW division over there is the weakest division in all of MMA!

Feel abit sad for Winner, but i guess its was inevitable that he was going to get released, i think there is only Pearson, Wilks and Johnson left from that TUF season now.
