Stevenson not getting cut after loss to Danzig

by Damon Martin | source:

A quick punch from Mac Danzig left Joe Stevensonr flat on his face, and the knockout was his 4th in his last 6 fights. Prior to the fight, his opponent Mac Danzig felt it was a “win or go home” type situation for their match-up in Montreal.

Now with Stevenson on the losing end will he get a pink slip for Christmas from the UFC?

 says not so fast, but some tough decisions have to be made.

“We like guys that fight," says UFC president Dana White. "We like guys that come in and lay it on the line. Joe Stevenson’s had a bad run, it’s so tough to cut a guy that comes in and does what he’s supposed to do, and he’s one of those guys. He got knocked out trying to knock (Danzig) out tonight. That’s what happened.”

“We’ll see what happens with Joe Stevenson. I respect him, (UFC vp) Joe (Silva) respects him, we like him and I wouldn’t say he’s getting cut, no.”

dropping to FW would help him but i doubt he can cut an extra 10 pounds. his days in the UFC will be numbered if he loses his next fight.

Stevenson vs Lauzon makes sense. Loser leaves town.

It's only his second loss in a row and the only time he's been KO'ed since his loss to Jens Pulver 11 years ago. This loss to Danzig might even be considered a little fluky since it was a pretty odd punch to get KO'ed by. Joe'd just beat Nate Diaz and destroyed Spencer Fisher before the loss to Sotiropolous. I don't get why there should even be a question of his being cut.
