UFC releases 12 of 16 cast members of Ultimate Fighter Season 16
The Ultimate Fighter, during it’s seven years and 16 seasons, has long been a haven of sorts for new and established talent to find a home on the biggest stage of all, the UFC. It has given some fighters the chance to become stars in a landscape where they might not have gotten the opportunity. Now, in an unprecedented, although possibly not unwarranted move, the UFC has cut 12 of the 16 contestants from season 16 of The Ultimate Fighter.
In a recent post from website MMA Junkie, the news of the mass release was detailed.
Twelve of the show’s 16 cast members, including (Sam) Alvey, were cut from the organization following its regular-season run on FX.
