The UFC is still at it…reducing their roster that is. They were obviously not joking when they said that they wanted to drop their roster by more than 50 fighters, cutting Matt Arroyo, Nate Mohr, and Reese Andy in recent weeks, according to Five Ounces of Pain.
Arroyo defeated John Kolosci at The Ultimate Fighter 6 Finale, but next suffered back-to-back losses to Matt Brown and Dan Cramer that sealed his release from the promotion.
Andy continues the two loss release equation, dropping two-straight fights to Matt Hamill and Brandon “The Truth” Vera. While both of the losses came against well-known fighters, Vera’s stock has tumbled in recent fights and Hamill hasn’t emerged as a top light heavyweight.
Nate Mohr’s four-fight career in the UFC ended with defeats from Manny Gamburyan and Dennis Siver.
While the UFC has been cleaning out their closet it appears that they are still in the business of hiring, adding American Top Team heavyweight Todd Duffee to their list of contracted fighters.
