Latest UFC roster cuts: Leonard Garcia and Bart Palaszewski confirm their releases

USA TODAY Sports

Leonard Garcia, who had several opportunities to keep himself afloat inside the promotion's featherweight division, was unable to secure that elusive win and now joins Bart Palaszewski on the list of latest UFC roster cuts.

Now, before anyone starts applauding or carrying on, please keep in mind that it's in poor taste to celebrate when someone loses their ability to earn a living, provide for their family or just flat-out make a few bucks.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight Leonard Garcia (15-11), who today announced his release from the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion, is not guilty of anything but losing fights.

True, the "Bad Boy" probably should have been released a bit sooner, especially when the promotion was making massive cuts earlier in the year, but that's for UFC to decide. Garcia finishes his career inside the Octagon at 2-7 following a string of five straight losses.

He's not alone.

Joining him on the unemployment line is Bart Palaszewski (36-17), who started things off with a bang by knocking out Tyson Griffin, but went on to lose his next three, including a submission defeat to Cole Miller at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale last month in Las Vegas.

"Bartimus" will likely run into Pablo Garza and Antonio Carvalho somewhere on the regional circuit, as both "Scarecrow" and "Pato" confirmed their releases earlier this week.

Two more down ... how many more to go?
