Retrospective on TUF cuts

Hello everyone. I've been on BE for a couple months now and this is my fanpost. I have a couple ideas for future articles but for now I want to take a trip in my time machine to almost one year ago to the day. This article was written then and gives predictions as to who would be the next TUF winner to be cut.

It's interesting to see how different things are one year later. At the time Nate Diaz and Roy Nelson were considered to be on the cusp of being released and now look how things have changed (for Diaz anyway). From close to being cut to now being a title contender. What's interesting to notice that of those considered to be cut only one has been cut, however neither of the other two have fought in almost 2 years now and so are both still are the cusp of being cut. Also in that time Efrain Escudero was re-signed and then cut again, so some things never change.

So excluding those mentioned in the previous article who do you reckon will be the next TUF winner to be cut? My choices would be Amir Sadollah or Mac Danzig, however assuming James Wilks ever fights again, he'll be the next out of the UFC. Thanks I hope you enjoyed my very first BE fanpost,
