The UFC is gearing up for a major trimming of its roster, and although that generally sounds like bad news, there could be some long-term positives for mixed martial arts on the horizon. This past Saturday following UFC on ESPN 19, UFC president Dana White told reporters that the promotion is planning to release about 60 fighters from their contracts before the end of 2020. White said the roster is “very inflated right now” and that “serious cuts” were on the way. The news came shortly after the release of Yoel Romero , a multiple-time UFC title challenger and perennial contender at middleweight. But this shouldn’t be a surprise . Back in August, White had a similar message when asked about how the large influx of newcomers from Dana White’s Contender Series would affect the promotion.
