It looks like Antonio Silva's release from Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was just the tip of the ice berg. According to a report by MMA Fighting, the promotion has officially let go of 13 fighters in total. While "Bigfoot" is easily the most high-profile name, 12 other mixed martial artists experienced the same fate.

The complete cut list is as follows:

  • Shane Campbell
  • Kevin Casey
  • Cody East
  • Glaico Franca
  • Leonardo Augusto Guimaraes
  • Cory Hendricks
  • Caio Magalhaes
  • Enrique Marin
  • Tamdan McCrory
  • Kenny Robertson
  • Antonio Silva
  • Sean Spencer
  • Alberto Uda
Outside of Silva, the most noteworthy names on this list are Tamdan McCrory, who was expected to climb the ranks in the middleweight division after coming back over from Bellator MMA, Enrique Marin, who lost to Sage Northcutt at UFC 200 this past July, and Kevin Casey, the former TUF standout who saw his ascension slowed by two no contests and one draw since 2014.

With new UFC management in place and the demand for sustained Octagon production at an all-time high, more promotional cuts are bound to surface early into 2017.
