Vemola, Burrell among six released from UFC roster


A pretty clear indication of a UFC fighter's release has been removal of their profile from Today, removed six profiles from their website, most likely indicating the fighters have been released:

As soon as an event is over, it's inevitable that a few fighters will have fought for the last time with the promotion. Sometimes exactly which fighter ends up being on the outside is a bit of a surprise (unless you're the omnipotent Tim Burke), sometimes the predictions feel easy. Whatever the means or the method, it would appear that another six fighters have made their exit from the world's largest MMA promotion: Eddie Mendez, Roger Hollett, Anthony Smith, Nah-Shon Burrell, Karlos Vemola, and Leandro Silva.

It's not the most surprising list in the world, all are fairly low profile fighters coming off a loss, but there are a couple of releases that seem a trifle abrupt.

Nah shon may have missed weight but he was fed to a karate prodigy and had a great fight and showed some powerful strikes. ANd Vemola fought hard, exciting fights save your job my ass
