UFC Fighters on the Hot Seat in the Month of August
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The month of August has arrived, and with it comes a list of fighters on the hot seat this month in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Several fighters find themselves in dire-need of success in the cage this month, whether a competitor needs a win to avoid release, or in order to maintain his or her status in a certain division. The fighters making up this list will include mostly big names, as opposed to undercard fighters who remain relatively unknown; those fighters are obviously on the hot seat, but aren't relevant in their respective divisions at the moment. 

The UFC kicks off August this Saturday with UFC 163 in Brazil, while UFC Fight Night 26, UFC Fight Night 27 and UFC 164 follow later this month. 

There are plenty of implications ready to come out of these fight cards, and several fighters have more on the line this month than most. Let's take a look at which competitors are on the hot seat in August.
