UFC recently received a request from Jon Jones to just cut him already. They did cut some people today, but Jones wasn’t on the list.

The UFC has parted ways with Brok Weaver, Shana Dobson, Jordan Espinosa, and Vince Cachero. This was first reported by MMA Junkie.

The company has yet to make an official announcement about those four releases. It was reportedly confirmed with multiple sources.

In 2020, Dana White estimated that about 60 fighters would need to be cut to slim down their roster. Odds are there will be more cuts to come in 2021.

UFC might have elected to not re-sign their contracts or they ended their relationship prematurely. Either way, Weaver, Dobson, Espinosa, and Cachero are reportedly no longer under the UFC roof. We will have to see where they end up next.

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
