It is not just a matter of him being outside the top 5, it is also a matter of how long he has been outside the top 5.

What other fighter with similar results(note I also specified no significant fan following), has lasted this long?
I'm far more concerned with guys like Leonard Garcia or Cody Mackenzie taking up spots than a guy like Tibau, who has a solid record and a genuine skill set. I don't think it really matters how long he has been around, as long as he keeps winning.

He got cut because he lost three fights in a row, which is standard procedure. Tibau will be cut as soon as he drops three.
