UFC Releases Several Fighters From Their Roster

Korean star Dongi Yang lost a decision to Brad Tavares at last month's Korean Zombie vs. Poirier event. It was his second straight loss, which led to him being released by the UFC.

Following recent losses in the past few months, the UFC has decided to release several fighters from their roster. Among those confirmed to have been cut by the promotion were Dongi Yang, Kamal Shalorus, Jorge Lopez, and Jeff Curran who all suffered defeats at last month's UFC on Fuel TV event.

Others also confirmed to have been let go are Aaron Rosa (lost 2 out of 3), Efrain Escudero (2 straight losses), and former WEC Champion, Steve Cantwell (5 straight losses).

While not yet announced, a few other fighters has had their profiles at UFC.com removed, which usually signals being cut from the promotion. Here are the following:

- Alex Soto (2 straight losses, also lost at the same UFC on Fuel TV event)
- Eric Wisely (2 straight losses)
- Mike Massenzio (2 straight losses)

Any fighters listed here who deserved to get another chance with the promotion?
