I'd expect a lot of these guys to be cut. Dunno if guys like Shimizu and Galera get additional fights unless the UFC holds another international event where they pretty much need warm bodies to fill out the card.

that being said:

Tarec/Ellenberger
Lim vs. John Howard? Pretty much anyone really that isn't too highly ranked.
Kawajiri vs Swanson 
Kang vs Phan if he's still around
Holloway vs. Cole Miller
Chope vs some unknown guy
Kikuno vs. kj noons

Melvin Manhoef has been begging for the UFC to sign him. He said he would fight at his natural weight, which happens to be welterweight. Even though rankings wise it doesnt make sense, Saffiedine vs Manhoef. Then Tarec will see what real legs kicks are.

Yeah manhoef is getting old but still hits like a mack truck. If they are gonna sign him its gotta be now before he gets so old his skills fade away. Dunno why the UFC wont pull the trigger. Hes an exciting striker, the kind fans love. And theres plenty of WW strikers for him to fight.

I think it the fact he on a two fight losing streak. One of the loses coming from a guy who was cut from the UFC. Also the welter weight division also happens to have the most amount of high level wrestler and take down artist which is the bane of Marvin existence. So it really not all that surprising at all.

Ah id still like to see him fight Saffiedine,Bahadurzada,Brown,Thompson and Cote. Then he can jump up back to MW and fight Cung,Hester,Watson,Larkin, basically anybody that wants to bang.

Manhoef can make 170? Thats hilarious, he'd make Lombard and.Abedi look small.

Yeah i never thought there was a way in hell he could make WW since hes fought at MW and LHW for most of his career. He would need mike dolce and a serious conditioning coach. Id actually fall over in surprise if he made that weight. But he said in an interview that its his natural weight class and could make it if the UFC signed him. I guess theres been no need to go through a big weight up and out that strain on himself just to do freak show fights.
