Justin Buchholz released by UFC

Team Alpha Male fighter Justin Buchholz is the latest casualty of the ufc 109 fighter cuts as the Alaskan native has been released from his contract following a loss to Mac Danzig last weekend.

The news of his release was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fighter on Friday.

After going 1-1 including a win over Corey Hill, Buchholz ran into some tough fights against Terry Etim and Jeremy Stephens, and he looked to bounce back when facing Danzig at UFC 109.

A back and forth battle ensued, but Buchholz came up short and lost a unanimous decision. For now, Buchholz will get back to training with Urijah Faber and his camp in Sacramento, Calif., as several teammates get ready for upcoming fights.

If TJay and I were still running Icon we'd welcome back immediately. He's a great kid, exciting fighter, and always was a crowd favorite when he was our Hawaii LW State Champ. At the time he signed with the UFC I didn't think he was quite ready, and unfortunately I was right. But I think a time will come - maybe after a series of good wins and extended training - when he will be ready to return to the UFC.Good luck Justin.

I'm a big fan of Justin, and he's a kid that is always exciting in his fights. Sucks he got released, but I'm sure he'll work his way back.

Lot's of cuts from UFC 109. Talent needs to be churned....Once it is known that a fighter can't cut it (and can't sell tickets either).... It's time for them to go and make room on the roster for an unproven talent who at least has the potential....
