UFC Releases Eight Fighters

<p>The UFC has released eight fighters from its roster, <a href="http://www.mmafighting.com/2015/12/29/10685464/fabio-maldonado-among-eight-fighters-released-from-the-ufc">as first reported by MMAFighting.com</a>. The list of fighters is as follows:</p> <ul> <li>Fabio Maldonado (22-9)</li> <li>Chico Camus (14-7, 1 NC)</li> <li>Kevin Souza (16-4)</li> <li>Erick Almeida (7-2)</li> <li>Bubba Bush (8-3, 1 NC)</li> <li>Mickael Lebout (14-5-1, 1 NC)</li> <li>Vernon Ramos (3-1)</li> <li>Jumabieke Tuerxun (15-3)</li> </ul> <p>Possibly the biggest name on the list is former UFC light-heavyweight Fabio Maldonado. Maldonado entered the UFC back in 2010 where he amassed a 5-6 record. The former pro-boxer is known for putting on entertaining fights, even in his losses. His most notable UFC victories are over James McSweeney, Joey Beltran, and Gian Villante.</p> <p>The UFC received some backlash on social media for its choice to cut featherweight Kevin Souza. The 31-year-old entered the promotion with a 13-3 record, winning his debut via split-decision. He won his next two UFC bouts with a pair of knockouts, earning him two post-fight bonuses. His 10-fight win streak was then broken after losing via submission to Chas Skelly last November. He was subsequently released from the promotion.</p>
