    Jingliang clarified that his previous contract ended and he is currently negotiating a new one. Dongi asked for his release due to lack of fights being offered and was granted it, he's signed to Gleamon FC now and will fight in their 2nd event in May.

    nobody overly huge there.
    Some decent pick-ups available for smaller organization, but no game changers.

    I'd say thatch could go to bellator. Could only add to their ww division. They need too ww as well as mid tier like thatch

    most of those names dont ring a bell so i dont think they will be missed. some decent pickups for smaller orgs.

    I also think jkMMA is right in that i dont think the ufc will let Jingliang go. Thatch has somewhat of a name so Bellator could use him.

    Crazy to think that Thatch have already headline a UFC card....
    Maybe he could go to Bellator and try to get some W, it wouldn't be crazy if he try to compete at MW, it always look like he has a suspicious cardio.

    Pesta and Dalby with this new Russian MMA spring are probably going to finish in EFN or ACB

    the second one

    the sad thing is he probably would still beat a lot of the guys still contracted at his weightclass, but his weakness is so bad that when he loses it's really embarrassing :D he may be back someday

    Cutting Dalby is weird. He's only lost 2 in the UFC, still 14-2-1 overall. And good for their European cards.

    Thatch being a local guy seeing him get exposed has sucked. Hopefully he can bounce back. Think he would be a solid addition to Bellator though.

    Thatch is to big and slow for 170. Li jingliang hand speed is to fast for him. Maybe thatch can go up to 185 and then maybe will see him in ufc again someday .
