Phil De Fries, Chris Spang and Five Others Released From The UFC

April will go down as the busiest month in the UFC’s history to date, and the first round of cuts from the event packed month are in. UFC President Dana White noted the UFC would need to cut close to 100 fighters because of the addition of the Strikeforce roster, and we can add 7 more to the list. Heavyweight Phil De Fries, Strikeforce import Chris Spang, and TUF 17 cast members Kevin Casey, Adam Cella, Jimmy Quinlan, Collin Hart, and Gilbert Smith were all released from the promotion.

The report came from MMA Opinion, and more cuts are likely to come from the action that took later in the month of April. Stay tuned to for updates.
