A half dozen fighters may be fighting to avoid a pink slip this weekend, including Amir Sadollah and Yoshihiro Akiyama, who'll be squaring off in probably the most high-risk fight of the evening. Likely Cut Regardless of Outcome Kazuki Tokudome (12-5-1, 1-2 UFC) - Fighters have been kept around after three losses before, but it's rare, and I don't think that Tokudome has the style or fan recognition that would earn him that privilege. Takenori Sato (17-9-7, 0-1 UFC) - He was absolutely overwhelm read news >>

Looks like UFC heavyweight Mark Hunt really let himself go in between fights, something he could regret Friday in Japan. "The Super Samoan" tipped the scales at a hefty 284 pounds at the end of the day Thursday, so therefore, he would've been forced to shed 18 pounds by Friday's 3 a.m. ET weigh-ins, according to Yahoo Sports. The UFC heavyweight limit is 265 pounds, though 266 pounds is acceptable for non-title matchups. Perhaps even more shocking than his weight is the notion that Hunt isn't wo read news >>

This Saturday, former Top 10 welterweight Paulo Thiago is likely fighting to keep his spot on the UFC's roster. Likely Cut With a Loss Paulo Thiago (15-7, 5-7 UFC) - Thiago made a big splash in the division with finishes of Josh Koscheck and Mike Swick, wins which saw him rocket up the rankings. That seems like ages ago, though; Thiago hasn't won consecutive fights in four years, and his record since then is 2-6. It'd be a shock if his UFC career could withstand another loss. Possibly Cut With a read news >>

How quickly things change. Following his loss to Ben Rothwell on Friday, Overeem has now lost three read news >>
