MMA: 16 Fighters Cut From The UFC Including Jon Fitch, Jacob Volkmann, And Ulysses Gomez

Welterweight Jon Fitch Cut By The UFC

Welterweight Jon Fitch Cut By The UFC

Today is a frightening day for any UFC fighter that came off a loss recently inside the famous Octagon because Dana White has confirmed with MMA Fighting that 16 fighters are released from the promotion. Among the more popular and well respected names in the list is welterweight Jon Fitch, who is officially a free-agent since his release, including Jacob Volkmann and Ulysses Gomez.

Apparently Gomez heard about his cut via Ariel Helwani on Twitter earlier today, and was completely shocked. Based on that alone, I’m assuming other fighters are probably still not aware they are cut, or are hearing about the news just this minute.

Here is the complete list of UFC fighters cut today:

Jon Fitch
Wagner Prado
Mike Russow
Jacob Volkmann
Vladimir Matyushenko
Che Mills
Jay Hieron
Terry Etim
Paul Sass
Jorge Santiago
Mike Stumpf
Simeon Thoresen
C.J. Keith
Motonobu Tezuka
Josh Grispi
Ulysses Gomez
