Times are hard in this this economy. The UFC made quick work, cutting UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman shorty after his loss to Randy Couture in the main event at UFC 109. Also cut, former UFC welterweight contender Frank Trigg after his weak performance against Matt Serra.
UFC 109 undercard fighters Phillipe Nover and Tim Hague are also on that list. Nover, a TUF veteran, was expected to be one of the UFC’s top prospects following the show, but after going 0-3 in the UFC, he was let go.
The UFC roster is very tight, named fighters are being let go after just two loses and newcomers know every fight is a must win.
