Dana White and the UFC have made it known that their roster is too full. With the addition of yet another division, this time the Women Straw-weights, expect to see more and more fighters cut.
Today, the UFC has announced that it has cut George Sotiropoulos, Rosi Sexton, and Alessio Sakara. UFC Tonight tweeted the news earlier:

Both Sakara and Sotiropoulos were on four fight losing streaks inside the Octagon. Sexton was 0-2 in her two fights inside the Octagon, including a bludgeoning from Jessica Andrade earlier this year.
Sakara, who made his UFC debut back in 2005, was 6-8 with 1 no contest in his UFC career. His best stretch came from 2008-2010, where he won three fights in a row. He last fought late replacement, Nicholas Musoke, where he lost via armbar in the first round.
Sotiropoulos was a member of TUF 6 and also coached TUF: The Smashes against Ross Pearson. Sotiropoulos started his UFC career at an incredible 7-0. He looked to be only a win or two away from a possible title shot at Lightweight. Once his competition raised, however, Sotiropoulos was unable to keep his streak alive. He last fought against KJ Noons at UFC 166, losing a decision.
