February 20, 2013 12:09 pm by Julien Solomita

On Tuesday, Dan White confirmed that 16 fighters were cut from the UFC’s roster.

Wagner Prado, Mike Russow, Jacob Volkmann, Vladimir Matyushenko, CHe Mills, Jay Hieron, Terry Etim, Paul Sass, Jorge Santiago Mike Stumpf, Simeon Thoreson, C.J. Keith, Motonobu Tezuka, Josh Grispi and Ulysses Gomez have all been cut from the UFC.

Some are standouts whose release may come as a shock and some may be lesser known names, but a 16 athlete firing spree is a clear sign that the UFC has a very deep roster and if you don’t entertain you’re out the door.
