Four, released by UFC, including Nobre.

Following the release of 9 fighters last week, the UFC have added another 4 to the chopping board.
Ken Stone coming off a 2-2. at UFC 150 where he suffered a 17 second knockout loss to rising star Erik Perez. 
Byron Bloodworth who went 0-2 on his UFC contract, at UFC 155 he suffered a TKO loss to the prior mentioned Erik Perez.
Pedro Nobre has been released after his no contest with Yuri Alcantara at UFC on FX 7. Nobre was deemed unable to continue following some ground and pound by Alcantara, in which Nobre claimed he was struck to the back of the head. Video replays showed that Alcantara landed nothing but clean shots.
Josh Janousek who has been released without fighting for the organization. Janousek was scheduled to fight Michael Kuiper at this weekend’s UFC on FOX 6 card. No reason was given for the cut.
The UFC seem to be cutting some of the excess fat following the signing of some of Strikeforce’s talent.
