5 More Fighters the UFC Should Release

Earlier today news surfaced stating lightweight Ryan Couture had been axed by the UFC after back-to-back losses in the Octagon. Ultimately, Couture wasn’t alone in his new found free agency, as Ben Alloway, Papi Abedi, and James Head were also handed pink-slips. While it’s never good to see a fighter lose his spot on the roster, the UFC’s decision to cut the quartet is certainly understandable based on performance. Of course, they aren’t the only Mixed Martial Artists likely to field new offers in the immediate future, as a number of other notable competitors are skating on thin ice quickly melting under the blazing hot pressure to succeed inside the infamous eight-sided cage.
