Default Jon Fitch and others cut from UFC

http://www.mmafighting.com/2013/2/20...ufc-on-tuesday

Quote:
Former welterweight contender Jon Fitch was among the 16 UFC fighters who were released from the promotion on Tuesday.

UFC president Dana White also confirmed with MMAFighting.com that the following fighters were also let go:
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

Each fighter was coming off at least one loss in his most recent fight.
I'm actually not too surprised about Fitch. Also with the number of fighters that they have now I wouldn't be surprised to see guys getting dropped after 2 loses or 2 in 3 fights.
