CHOPPING BLOCK: UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs Rockhold - An Unoffical Look at Each Fighter's UFC Job Standing for 5/18/13
UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs Rockhold will be held Saturday, May 18, 2013, at the Arena Jaragua in Jaraguá do Sul, Brazil.
Here is the Complete UFC on FX 8 Fight Card for reference.
UFC President Dana White recently estimated that over 100 fighters are needed to be cut from the UFC roster. This is partially to make room for newly signed fighters, but also to ensure that all of the fighters on the active roster are able to be offered at least 3 fights per year. This can be a tricky task for UFC matchmaker Joe Silva given he has a limited number of fight cards to work with each year.
The following is an unofficial evaluation of each fighter's job security heading into their UFC on FX 8 fight. If a match-up is listed, then both fighters are likely in the same boat. These determinations are not based on any insider information. They are simply the opinion of a longtime observer of the UFC's hiring and firing practices.
