The UFC just did some house cleaning and removed over 30 names from their website.

Before you get excited, the UFC did not cut over 30 people from their roster. The UFC updated their website and removed people who weren’t fighting for them any more. In some cases contracts weren’t renewed or cuts were indeed made. We also saw other people retire or just remained inactive.

Almost every person on the list below, should be out of the UFC. A few names stick out though. Anthony Birchak, Brock Lesnar, Rick Story, Lorenz Larkin, Taylor Lapilus, Erik Goyito Perez, Ali Bagautinov, and Takeya Mizugaki seem like the names you wouldn’t see on the list.
Then again if we are being truthful… Birchak, Story, Larkin, Lapilus, and Goyito are really the only surprises. They could have contract disputes and they were left off of the website. Who knows? There’s no confirmation from any of these guys getting cut, except Anthony Birchak.

Again, OVER 30 PEOPLE WERE NOT CUT FROM THE UFC. They were removed from the official UFC website.

More names have been removed from the site, since the initial website removals were made. There’s a twitter page that automatically deletes and adds names based on who is taken off or put on to the UFC site, called @UFCFIGHTERSiNFO.

If you would like to get news from a computer generated list that is simply there to track movement, by all means follow them. My advice is stick to the human element and wait for things to be confirmed by fighters or the UFC.

If you don’t… You’d think that Dan Henderson, Kyle Noke, Miesha Tate, and Urijah Faber were all cut today.
