UFC Cut List: Who needs a win to stay?

source: mmafighting.com

Being on a UFC Live is a precarious place for many UFC fighters. If you are not on a PPV, it is often because the UFC does not believe people will pay to see you compete. Half the people lose every fight, and for the ones who don't win, some will not just move down the rankings, they are out. MMAFighting's Ben Fowlkes put together a list of the fighters who most need a victory this Sunday.

Cheick Kongo
Who he's fighting: Pat Barry
Odds of getting cut: 4-1.

Matt Brown
Who he's fighting: John Howard
Odds of getting cut: even. If he loses on Sunday -- and if he's not related to someone important in the UFC front office -- he's getting cut.

John Howard
Who he's fighting: Matt Brown
Odds of getting cut: 5-1.

Tyson Griffin
Who he's fighting: Manvel Gamburyan
Odds of getting cut: 3-1.

Joe Stevenson
Who he's fighting: Javier Vazquez
Odds of getting cut: 2-1. If he doesn't win, wave goodbye to Joe "Daddy."

I think they should start elimination matches. Put two on the fence guys vs each other and there ya go.

 Kongo is a winner or loser quite predictably, depending upon how they want to book him. So they will probably keep him around when they want a particular result. no need to fix fights to get what you want.

Brown and Stevenson are on thin ice. They had both win, or I think they are gone for sure.
