14 Fighters Removed From UFC Roster (Anyone You Know?)

14 Fighters Removed From UFC Roster (Anyone You Know?)

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is cleaning up their roster as the first quarter of it’s 2017 fight campaign, removing nearly a dozen fighters from its mixed martial arts (MMA) roster this week.

That’s according to MMAMania…

Most popular among them is the welterweight fighter Brandon Thatch, who came into his first bout with very high expectations — along two bloody, hard-fought victories in a row… Since then, he has lost four straight, all of them by submission…

Brandon Thatch
Li Jingliang
Yusuke Kasuya
Felipe Olivieri
Chris Avila
Jason Novelli
J.C. Cottrell
Nicolas Dalby
Dong-Yi Yang
Erick Montano
Viktor Pesta
Valerie Letourneau
Kelly Faszholz
Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger

Some of these names may not come as a surprise, like former UFC strawweight Valerie Letourneau, who indicated her contract was in “Trouble” last February after three straight losses.

The good news is, there are still plenty of options for life outside of UFC.
