Etim, Mills and Sass cut from the UFC.

Paul SassFollowing the UFC’s return to the UK, English fighters Che Mills, Terry Etim and Paul Sass are among sixteen fighters released by the company.
All three suffered defeats in their latest outings for the promotion.
Che Mills was criticised by Dana White on twitter during Saturday night’s event, “Che just blew the end of that fight. Had top position in the guard with 38 secs left and just stares at Riddle!!! WTF?! WOW.”
Che did come back at White saying, “@danawhite boss I respect your opinion. But put me back in there & I’ll prove to you I still want this.”
His pleas seem to have fallen on deaf ears.
UFC president Dana White confirmed with MMAFighting.com that the full list of fighters who were let go: John Fitch, Wagner Prado, Mike Russow, Jacob Volkmann, Vladimir Matyushenko, Che Mills, Jay Hieron, Terry Etim, Paul Sass, Jorge Santiago, Mike Stumpf, Simeon Thoresen, C.J. Keith, Motonobu Tezuka, Josh Grispi and Ulysses Gomez.
Following the recruitment of the Strikeforce fighters this is undoubtedly a move to cut the roster. However, don’t be surprised to see more than a few of these fighters resigned to the company in the next few years.
