UFC Boss On Recent Series Of Releases: ‘The Blood Has Not All Been Spilled Yet’

Jon Fitch’s surprise release from the UFC caught the attention of social media, and UFC president Dana White was attacked through the various outlets.

During the pre-fight press conference for UFC 157 earlier this week, the UFC boss made it known that more cuts are coming.

We have 470-something guys under contract. We have over 100 guys too many on the roster right now. The blood has not all been spilled yet.

Harsh words from the man in charge of the biggest MMA promotion in the world.

You have to consider everyone not wearing a title belt, being though of as a contender in the near future, or in good standing with the UFC as potential release victims.

If someone like Fitch, who competed for the title and won over a dozen bouts inside the Octagon, can be released, any fighter with a string of defeats should be looking over his shoulder.
