Unfortunately at almost every UFC event a group of fighters are fighting for more than a win, but to keep their jobs in the promotion. At the UFC Fight Night 26, or UFC on FOX Sports 1 debut event, several athletes may be doing just that:

Likely to be cut with a loss:

Michael Johnson - His UFC run has been a roller coaster. It peaked with wins over Tony Ferguson and Danny Castillo, but two consecutive losses have him on the ropes. He seems to have regressed a bit lately, and he's going to have his hands full with Lauzon. A third straight loss will probably mean the door.

John Howard - He's in on late notice at middleweight against Hall. He says he feels better at 185, but he's 5'7. His last UFC run saw him lose three straight at welterweight in 2010-2011. He's gone 6-1 since then, but the UFC hasn't been as charitable about giving late replacements another fight lately. I think Howard might be one of those one-and-done guys if he loses.

Possibly cut with a loss: Daniel Pineda, Manny Gamburyan, Cole Miller, Ramsey Nijem, James Vick

Likely safe regardles of outcome: Mauricio Rua, Chael Sonnen, Alistair Overeem, Travis Browne, Urijah Faber, Yuri Alcantara, Matt Brown, Mike Pyle, Urijah Hall, Joe Lauzon, Brad Pickett, Michael McDonald, Conor McGregor, Max Hollaway, Matt Brown, Steven Siler, Diego Brando, Cody Donovan, Ovince St. Preux

read entire article...

So of course the list above represents on writers opinion, but what do you think UG? Is this list accurate, and if not, how would you change it?

I don't think Howards on the list for his first fight back. Late replacement at a different weight class after being resigned after a good record being away. I say he gets 1 more if he loses this one, which I don't think he does. DOOMSDAY DROPS BOMBS SON! Phone Post
