Hieron released from Strikeforce, back to UFC?

by Anton Tabuena | source: bloodyelbow.com

Jay Hieron who has had some issues with Strikeforce, says via twitter that he's officially been released from the promotion.

"I finally got my release from SF... Y'all know what I'm about to do!!!!!!!"

    "I have been threw a lot of Shit this past year but I have trained the whole time. So all WWs take notice I'm coming for somebodys head..."

The former IFL champ hasn't fought since January, when he beat Joe Riggs -- in the undercard of Strikeforce: Miami. Shortly after he completed his contract on that last fight, there have been lots of mumblings of his desire to get back in the UFC. So I'm guessing "Ya'll know what I'm about to do!!!!!!" doesn't mean he's excited to start fighting at King of the Cage.

Hieron got jerked around a couple of times by SF if I remember correctly.He was supposed to fight Nick Diaz for the title at SF: Carano/Cyborg but Diaz didn't do his drug test so Hieron ended up fighting and beating Jesse Taylor. Then they were supposed to fight at SF: Miami but SF did Diaz/Zaromskis instead, leaving Hieron to fight Joe Riggs, who he beat. He got put on the prelims on both shows as well even though he was their only realy WW contender. Now he's just been sitting on the sidelines since January. Gotta figure he'll end up in Bellator or the UFC.

is he maybe headed to the Ufc? I'm sure he'll take the best deal possible but the Ufc loves to steal SF fighters at any cost.I'd love to see Hieron back in the Ufc ww division.
