Several Fighters Have Been Released From The UFC In Recent Weeks

It’s been a particularly hectic schedule for the UFC over the past month and a half, and as the dust begins to settle on their recent events it’s become evident that a number of fighters have been released from their contracts.

The cull list includes familiar faces in the UFC such as Eric Shafer who went 2-2 during his second stint in the promotion,Paul Buentello who unfortunately failed to pick up a win in his second spell in the octagon, and Caol Uno, another UFC vet who was unable to add another win to his UFC record after returning to the fold.

Spare a thought for Jason High though who lasted just one preliminary bout at UFC Fight Night 21 before being given his walking papers.
