    I'd expect a dozen or so fighters to get cut soon

    Gives exposure to potential prospects while the UFC churns and burns the bottom 15-25 fighters in each division that no one gives a shit about.

    Should have a fixed number of fighters per division and have relegation matches between the bottom tier fighters and upcoming talent.
