The MMA world was a little shocked on Wednesday when ZUFFA announced that 16 fighters had been cut from the roster, including Jon Fitch.
However, the 16 is apparently just the beginning - multiple sources are reporting that the UFC plans to cut 100 fighters from the roster.
MMAJunkie co-founder tweeted definitively:

Surprised at some of names but not number of guys released by UFC. Was told they need to trim about 100 guys right now.
The information was confirmed by Ariel Helwani:

Dana says they are over 100 guys on the roster. The releases aren't over, he says.
The cuts are presumably due to the unflux of fighters from Strikeforce, as well as the addition in the last year of two new divisions - the women's 135 pound Bantamweight division, and the men's 125 pound Flyweight division.

Itís believed that this is primarily down to the influx of new fighters into the UFC via Strikeforce, while the introduction of the womanís 135lb division in addition to the 125lb menís flyweight division last year has also played itís part in the promotion now having a surplus of fighters for the 33 events they plan to hold in 2013.

Ik ben bang dat Alistair Overeem ook gecut zal gaan worden als hij van Jds verliest.

Laten ze die lichtere divisies maar afschaffen in plaats van zoveel gecut en dan willen ze ook nog een 115 pound divisie. Ik hoef geen kinderen te zien vechten.

Dezelfde fouten als het boksen maken. Tegen 2015 hebben ze er wel 28 nieuwe weight classes en 10 andere titels erbij. Zo verneuk je een vechtsport effectief.

Nick Diaz zal ook wel snel volgen. You heard it here first! ;)


John Morgan @MMAjunkieJohn
Dana said he's "really close" to pulling Nick from the GSP fight again. Really, really doesn't want to put feels his hand is being forced.
