Another one bites the dust. The UFC has been purging their roster to a great degree over the last few days and weeks, and it looks like one of the top flyweights on the roster is on his way out of the organization as well.

What is going on with UFC management? Another good one gone and most of these guys being released are coming off wins or are currently ranked. Horiguchi, Bader, Cirkinov, Krylov, Larkin, Story, Rory.

for a long time, I thought the Bros and Dana were fucking up, but these new owners are complete idiots..maybe they should just scrap the whole SW division..since they're hell bent on making this female FW division real, and Cyborg becoming champ..

Having top talent to them doesn't matter anymore.....their model seems to be just attempting to put on exciting fights whether the guy/girl wins or loses. I know Horiguchi has been fighting a little safer since MM but he's easily top 3 in the division and getting rid is him is a big mistake, that kid is fast and has KO power. Definitely a fan favorite.

I've been reading he was in negotiations and has been a free agent for a short while. I'm not sure which MMA news outlet broke this bullshit but whoever it was is trying to make it sound like Horiguchi was shit-canned. From what I have read thus far, his contract was up after his last fight and he didn't renew it. We may find out in days of weeks to come he requested a release or was not interested in fighting for the UFC any longer. Maybe, he wanted to make more money and potentially become a Star if not a Champ much closer to home with RIZIN.
The MMA media is as bad as the US media. Whoever can break the story first regardless of accuracy of facts or otherwise gets the paycheck.
