Rafael ‘Feijao’ and Daniel Sarafian cut by the UFC

image Late last night  it was announced that the UFC had cut UFC middleweight and 'TUF Brazil' finalist, Daniel Sarafian and former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion and UFC light-heavyweight contender, Rafael 'Feijao' Cavalcante. Sarafian, who made it to the semi-finals of 'TUF Brazil' has had a disappointing run in the organisation, going 4-2 in his first 6 bouts, with his last fight being a devastating loss to rising middleweight prospect, Oluwale Bamgbose last month. 'Feijao', came over from Strikeforce with a lot of hype, being a former champion in that organisation but he ultimately failed to live up to expectations in the UFC. In his first fight in the organisation, he lost by TKO to Thiago Silva in June of 2013 and has lost 3 of his last 4 fights since then, most recently being defeated by top light-heavyweight, Ovince St. Preux in February of this year.
