The Pink Slip: Who Might Be Cut After UFC Fight Night 239?



The first installment of the pair of Ultimate Fighting Championship events at the Apex Facility before the organization’s trip to the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City unfolded this Saturday with UFC Fight Night 239. Built around the centerpiece heavyweight attraction, the event highlighted six instances of submission dominance, three results determined by split decision, and a contentious ending in the co-main event that ended in a no-contest.

In the wake of the exultant victories, the spotlight pivots towards fighters navigating the uncertain terrains of an uncertain future. Let’s take a closer look at the fighters, who in the aftermath of the defeat, confront the grim prospect of the looming pink slip.

Ode Osbourne


Osbourne encountered another obstacle in his UFC career against Jafel Filho, succumbing to a rear-naked choke in the first round. This second consecutive loss prompts speculation about his future with the organization. Since making his UFC debut, Osbourne has faced a series of challenges that have tested his resolve as a fighter. He has navigated the competitive landscape of the flyweight and bantamweight divisions with varying degrees of success, registering a promotional record of 4-5 since making his debut at UFC 246. With his back against the wall following three losses in his last five Octagon outings, the setbacks raise questions about his ability to compete at the highest level and may put his roster spot in jeopardy.

Endowed with striking prowess which was on display in victories over the likes of Jerome Rivera, Osbourne claimed before the recently concluded event that he realizes the importance of synergizing all aspects of his fighting arsenal. He acknowledged the imperative and attributed previous losses to a solitary aspect: the methodical oversight of weight cutting and dietary discipline. However, even with that, he’s in a precarious position and it may take more than just that for him to secure his spot on the roster.
