Colin ‘Freakshow’ Fletcher has been cut from the UFC roster following his decision loss to Mike Ricci at UFC 158.
He announced the news himself today via his official Facebook page and also wrote a few words in which he expressed his feelings that the cut was “a little harsh”.
“Is it just me or does [being] cut after 1 official UFC fight seem a little harsh? I know I didn’t perform my best but it wasn’t a boring fight. And it was against a guy who trains out of Tristar with Rory McDonald [and] GSP,” he wrote.
“I took the fight on 6 weeks notice in his home town and got there 4 days b4 the fight. Basically trained with a hand full of local guys and ppl I teach.
“I thought I’d done OK in TUF Smashes. I only really struggled with Norman who I had became really close with and may have looked an arse in that fight also but I was told that showed I had a heart and was a good guy
“And at the end of the day TUF is a competition and I was a finalist. I know of a few semi finalists who get KO’d or subbed and go on to be given multiple chances… I know I could beat 75% of UFC fighters given the chance.
And I will get the chance again. I’ll do whatever I have to, to be back where I belong and have loads of fun doing it cos I’m a fighter and whether its in someone’s back garden or the Madison square garden it’s all the same… I live 4 this sh-t !!”
