Mark Coleman – Perhaps the most surprising cut. His long term value to the company was minimal, but he did put in a lot of years with the organization and perhaps deserved the Stephan Bonnar treatment. Heck, Mustapha Al Turk was given more of a chance than Coleman.
Frank Trigg – No shock. He has looked bad in both appearances in his UFC return. Retirement is very likely for “Twinkle Toes”
Rolles Gracie – This one is a little surprising. Rolles look very bad in his UFC debut, but I thought he may get one more chance. I don’t think it is acceptable to come into the UFC and put on such a poor show.
Tim Hague – – He went 1-2. He lost to Todd Duffee in 8 second. Then he lost a controversial split decision to Chris Tucsherer. He may be back one day.
Philippe Nover – Dubbed “the next Anderson Silva” during his stint in the Ultimate Fighter, Nover has stunk it up inside the octagon. He hasn’t won a fight. Back to the regional fights and his job as a nurse.
Justin Buchholz – The Urijah Faber trained kid just isn’t at UFC level now. He comes to fight, but he is nothing more than a guy that you feed people to right now. He has real potential, but he needs time to develop.
