UFC releases Josh Neer, Caros Fodor, Brock Jardine, and Jon Manley

USA TODAY Sports

Four fighters who competed (and lost) last month at UFC 157 have been given their walking papers, including Josh Neer (once again) and former Strikeforce lightweight Caros Fodor.

The UFC is downsizing their roster significantly, and 4 losers from UFC 157 were given the pink slip. Josh Neer, Caros Fodor, Jon Manley, and Brock Jardine were all sent packing (per MMA Opinion), and their profiles no longer appear on the UFC's website.

Neer (33-13-1) has now been cut 4 different times by the promotion. His latest release came after a 3 fight losing streak, completed with a decision defeat to Court McGee. it'd be hard to fathom the UFC brass bringing Josh back for a 5th time.

Fodor (7-3) lost a split decision to Sam Stout on the evening's preliminary card. He is the first fighter from the Strikeforce roster absorption to be cut after just one bout.

Jardine (9-3) went 0-2 in his UFC run, losing to Rick Story and then Kenny Robertson.

Lastly, Manley (7-2) was bounced following his loss to fellow TUF 16 member Neil Magny. There are only 3 fighters from this season of TUF still in the UFC (Magny, Colton Smith, and Mike Ricci).

Anton Kuivanen, who also fought at UFC 157 and lost, was released earlier this month.
