    Damn I really like Jared Papazian. Hopefully he can make a run outside of the organization and make a return into the UFC.

    I thought they would at least feed Griggs to Maldonado before they cut him.

    Sucks for Jared, even though he went 0-3 one was an exciting close loss, another was controversial and the last loss was fight of the night. Hopefully, he comes back.

    He is 7-4 in the UFC, no way they cut him with just two consecutive losses.

    I think LeVesseur should get another chance, even though he lost to Cody "easiest person to gameplan for" Mckenzie.

    He beat Prater, and fought Trujillo on very short notice, after Means got KO'd by the sauna. I understand he was already a replacement for another fight, which also ended up being scrapped but it sucks that he stepped up for the UFC, on the day of the weighins, and gets cut.

    thought I was the only one. The roster is getting so big and hard to keep up with.

    Sucks for them, especially in the case of it just coming out of the blue at some point. IMO they should make a point of letting guys know shortly after their last fight. Not the day of or anything, but it must suck thinking you might get another fight for 1-2 months and then just getting the bomb dropped.

    Everybody has an opportunity to make it back though.

    Well, he tested positive for high testosterone level. Other fighters have been cut for less.

    Griggs could get another chance if he does well at another organization.

    Unfortunate but it had to be done. They have so many fighters now the cards are getting diluted... UFC has been the top dog for a while now and they should have very strict standards on who can make it to that level.
