The UFC has decided to release several fighters from their roster.

Fighters cut from the promotion include Dongi Yang, Kamal Shalorus, Jorge Lopez, Jeff Curran. All were defeated at the UFC on Fuel TV event last month.

More cuts made by the promotion include Aaron Rosa (lost 2 of 3) Efrain Escudero (2 straight losses) Steve Cantwell (5 straight losses).

Popular MMA blog, Bloodyelbow.com also points out that more cuts could be made soon as a few other fighters have had their profiles at UFC.com removed, this usually signals that they may be cut from the promotion.

Alex Soto (2 straight losses & lost at UFC on Fuel TV)
Eric Wisely (2 straight losses)
Mike Massenzio (2 straight losses)

What do you think of the cuts are they warranted or should anyone else be added to the list ?
