After a six-fight stint in the world's top promotion and just a year removed from an impressive three-fight win streak in the organization, Tomasz Drwal now finds himself a free agent.

UFC officials cut ties with him after this past week's UFC Fight Night 22 loss to Dave Branch, the fighter's camp today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com.

Drwal is now looking to get another fight "as quickly as possible," a representative said.

Drwal will continue splitting his training between his gym in Poland and the Throwdown Elite Training Center in San Diego.


Ultimate Fighting Championship officials also released lightweight John Gunderson following a unanimous-decision loss to Yves Edwards at UFC Fight Night 22.

Although Gunderson initially contemplated retirement in the event of an octagon exit, he has decided to soldier on.

"My body feels good, and I feel like I have a couple of years left," he said. "I feel I can still perform."

Gunderson said he'll now seek a November fight in another promotion.

"The UFC has said they'd be happy to have me back after I pick up a couple of wins," he said.
