The UFC has likely released Hermes Franca, Chris Wilson, Marcus Aurelio, and Justin McCully, as MMA Survival notes that all four have been removed from UFC.com.
Franca (19-8), a former WEC lightweight champion, has lost 3 of his last 4 fights, including a second-round TKO loss to Tyson Griffin last month at UFC 103.
A veteran of the IFL, Wilson (14-6) has also lost 3 of his last 4 inside the Octagon, most-recently losing back-to-back fights to John Howard and Mike Pyle.
After leaving the UFC following two-straight losses to Tyson Griffin and Franca in 2008, Aurelio (18-8) returned in August to suffer a split decision loss to Evan Dunham at UFC 102.
McCully (9-5-2) was unimpressive in four UFC bouts, going 2-2, including a unanimous decision loss to newcomer Mike Russow in August.
