Will there be a budget-trimming roster purge coming soon?

    550+ fighters. The majority are in the "who the fook is that" category.

    Rumored reduction of events next year. Only 9 in the first quarter though certainly this can change and not all quarters will necessarily have just 9 events. Regardless, less shows = less fighters. A planned PPV in January was already scrapped for lack of available name fighters.

    WME's cost cutting is another factor.

    There haven't been many cuts recently. I'm speculating that they do not want to do it during the holiday season and are instead waiting till after the first week of January.
