Four UFC fighters cut, including Pedro Nobre, after recent losses

Ken Stone - Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion continues to trim the fat from its roster, today releasing another four fighters, including the much-maligned Pedro Nobre after his UFC on FX 7 debacle last weekend in Brazil.

Looks like Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White wasn't buying what Pedro Nobre was selling.

"The Rock" has been rolled right out of the promotion following his controversial no contest against Yuri Alcantara at last weekend's UFC on FX 7 event in Sao Paulo, Brazil, despite Nobre's "sad" assertion that he was a victim of circumstance.

And some pretty shitty officiating.

Joining the Brazilian on the unemployment line will be bantamweights Ken Stone (2-2 UFC) and Byron Bloodworth (0-2 UFC), as well as middleweight Josh Janousek (0-0 UFC). Janousek was expected to debut at the UFC on FOX 6 event tomorrow night in Chicago, but was pulled from the "Windy City" fight card for mysterious reasons an undisclosed injury.

Stone and Bloodworth fought admirably, but were unable to get anything going in their time inside the Octagon.

Today's news (via MMA Opinion) comes just a week after the promotion parted ways with nine other fighters, including Chad Griggs, Nick Penner, Marcus LeVesseur, John Cofer, Joey Gambino, Henry Martinez, Jeff Hougland, Jared Papazian and Yasuhiro Urushitani.

Doesn't take much these days. Especially after this.
