A pretty clear indication of a UFC fighter's release has been removal of their profile from UFC.com. Today, UFC.com 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.

Despite also being from Halifax, I have never felt the urge to support Roger Hollett in the slightest. I assume he will find some semblance of success in the minor leagues, but will never make it back into a top org.

Vemola is in the most exciting fight on the last card, gets cut.

I guess the Burrell release is because of the weight issues? I think it's weak to cut such an exciting fighter especially when he lost on short notice and before that was coming off a fight of the night. Phone Post 3.0

This is the EXACT REASON hat fighters point fight and have boring fights. Zuffa rewards ugly wins and cuts those who have exciting losses...

I believe it may have something to do with how he was brought up by ECC locally.

But I feel or him just the same. He's had a rough couple years. Phone Post 3.0

Nope. If I was the promoter I would tell Jon, very simply, that I want to keep him because he is one of the most talented fighters around but if he continues to stall and point fight I will cut him. I would cut a 5-0 fighter if all they did was stall and I had warned them not to...

Glad to see Maguire was not on the list he seemed pretty sure it didn't look good for him after his loss on the ESPN podcast last week. Hope he gets another fight. Phone Post

So happy to see that they didnt cut Mizuto Hirota!

He is really exciting and he has also suffered some of the worst robberies by the judges!

Good job uncle Dana on keeping this man around!

Complete and utter nonsense.

I could rattle off a hundred fighters who put it on the line 90% of the time. It is this kind of feeble-minded support of IDIOTIC business practices by guys (Frank, Lorenzo and Dana) who are watching their business DECLINE for 3 years straight as they get the biggest marketing push in the history of the sport (the FOX deal) that has crippled this sport............

Pitbull3744 - Vemola is a bad cut IMO but he will be back he is a beast Phone Post 3.0

Vemola was the funniest hype train ever. The guy has cardio for exactly 2 mins and has kindergarten level striking and slight below average wrestling in the states.

Weird, I actually feel the exact same (also live in Halifax). I never really bothered much with Hollett who is from Hali, but then I always supported guys like Jason MacDonald, Ryan Jimmo, and TJ Grant from day one just because they are maritimers. But they're also better fighters I suppose.

TheBeebs - Nah-Shon Burrell was too soon IMO. Phone Post 3.0

He missed weight by 5 pounds in his UFC debut and was off by 2 in his first attempt versus Thompson. While he wound up making weight in his second attempt at 160, I'd imagine it likely didn't sit well with the UFC brass that he didn't come in to the weigh-ins on weight.  With the tolerance the UFC has for this, I think that sunk him.
