    Only recognise a couple of names on the list but judging by their UFC records all cuts made sense especially as they'll soon be replaced by the latest recruits from Dana's Bargain basement brawls.

    I agree with all.

    Faria was a bit better than her results showed.

    Davis has been in some fun fights but he is the ultimate journeyman and didn't make improvements in between fights.

    Probably best for Ben to take a step down if he wants to continue. He will probably end up fighting in Bellator again though and will take more damage.

    Davis could have been given one more go at it.

    Shame about Ben... He's still good for a good fun brawl against an older vet, like the Matt Brown fight... Popcorn shit.

    Having said that, he's a long away from a title-run, and that's not going to improve with time...

    Still sad.

    I didn't recognize the name of Nathan Coy and had to look him up, apparently his last fight was in 2017—yeesh.

    Jin Soo Son had two FOTN bonuses in two fights so I disagree with that one. Agree with the rest, I like Ben but he's had a lot of fights and is taking a lot of damage lately. Would like to see him focus more on grappling contests.

    I think Jin Soo Son deserved another fight, definitely.

    Sucks to see Ben go. Nathan Coy was still a UFC fighter in 2020?

    But Junior is just a baby! He's got so much growing to do, still.

    Poor Ben, he never was UFC caliber yet it was nice to see him get a second chance.

    Hopefully they're making roster space for some decent signings. I think they're doing much better this year with adding to the roster with the likes of Jiri, Herbert, Baukaskas and Nurmagomedov. There are a few good free agents like Tofiq Masaev, Rustam Kerimov, Magomed Magomedov, Mateusz Gamrot and Albert Tumenov that they're hopefully talking to.

    Sucks they had to cut Popov and Son already, they're both fun and looked good so far.

    Saunders and Coy should reitre, the rest are good cuts imo.

    UFC has upped their signings in the last years imo.
    They sign big free agents and champs from other 'big' orgs, but still take LFA guys and regional verterans.

    The guy won ten UFC fights, he was certainly UFC calibre.
