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:
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.
