UFC Cut List: Who needs a win to stay?
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.
Who he’s fighting: Pat Barry
Odds of getting cut: 4-1.
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.
Who he’s fighting: Matt Brown
Odds of getting cut: 5-1.
Who he’s fighting: Manvel Gamburyan
Odds of getting cut: 3-1.
Who he’s fighting: Javier Vazquez
Odds of getting cut: 2-1. If he doesn’t win, wave goodbye to Joe “Daddy.”
UFC Live On Versus 4: Marquardt vs. Story takes place this Sunday, June 26, 2011 at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The main card will air LIVE on Versus, while the prelims will be streamed on Facebook.
