UFC 132 Cut List: Who needs a win to stay?
No one needs win at UFC 132 worse than Tito Ortiz. Then again, we said the same thing at UFC 121. He lost a decision there and managed to hold on to his job.
Who he’s fighting: Ryan Bader
Why he’s in danger: Ortiz doesn’t have a win since 2006. As White put it: “Dude, it’s 2011. He’s got to win.”
Odds of getting cut: Even.
Who he’s fighting: Brad Tavares
Why he’s in danger: The problem is a couple defeats matched with a few less than inspiring wins.
Odds of getting cut: 4-1.
Who he’s fighting: Anthony Njokuani
Why he’s in danger: One more loss and Winner will have the dreaded three-fight losing streak on his hands.
Odds of getting cut: 2-1.
Who he’s fighting: Andre Winner
Why he’s in danger: Njokuani rolled right into the UFC with a decision loss. Fortunately for him, that loss came in a thrilling effort that earned him a Fight of the Night bonus. Even if he doesn’t get the win against Winner, he’ll probably get one more chance to shine.
Odds of getting cut: 5-1.
