    These cuts happen all the time. It does suck to see a couple of the names on here though. Josh Grispi has lots of potential. He was killing it in WEC. He just hasn't been able to carry over the success into the main stage. Jon Fitch is a tough fighter. I think the reasoning he would have been let loose is based on finish ratio. I could pick out points on all listed yet, it doesn't really matter they will all need to step up their game in next few fights outside UFC to get a chance back.
