The pruning of the UFC roster has continued as Eliot “the Fire” Marshall and Shannon Gugerty have both been released from the UFC roster after suffering losses at this past weekend’s UFC on Versus event.
Gugerty is 2-3 after losing to Clay Guida on the preliminary portion of the UFC’s debut on the cable sports network.
The release of Elliot Marshall comes as a surprise to many. Marshall who lost a split decision to Vladimir Matyushenko on the preliminary portion of the UFC on Versus 1 card, is 3-1 in the UFC.
Boasting an overall professional record of 8-2 Marshall’s release is fueling speculation that the manner in which fighters lose as well as win fights is becoming a bigger determining factor in longevity with the company .
