Jason Reinhardt released by the UFC

by Matt Erickson | source: mmafighting.com

Jason Reinhardt hoped to reinvigorate himself by dropping down to bantamweight for his last fight.

He may have done that, but his loss to Edwin Figueroa at UFC on Versus 5 10 days ago was enough for the promotion to hand him his walking papers. Sources close to Reinhardt told MMA Fighting on Tuesday that Reinhardt has been released by the UFC.

Reinhardt, who was the oldest active fighter in the UFC, was in his second stint with the promotion. All three of his career losses came in UFC fights.

I'd like to say, before this thread on the UG I was not a fan, but not a hater either. I was indifferent. You are a great person. A true warrior. Going back to the UFC is often a goal for fighters which you had your go. Wanting to go back, is a real test of character. You want to go to war in a fight. A 'war' is not only for the fans, but something inside of you as a fighter who wants to prove something. Prove you can get into the trenches and pull out the win even when outnumbered, out skilled, and out armed. I am/was in a predicament like yourself. Fighting men who you know are legit competition, but its unsanctioned, regional, amateur, or otherwise. You fight men better than you and win off of heart and dedication. When you get to the big leagues, they get bashed, and your work seems small. Friend, let me say that its best to forget the haters. Who cares if a reporter criticizes you? Or a kid on a forum? It is more memorable to go out on your shield. Fight guys with a better pedigree than you. Go to war. Go out with heart. If you feel lost, pick up a new skill. If you fall down, pull a man into your guard. If you get hit, do not go out, keep on swinging. You will be back in the UFC. Just keep plugging away.

Rarely do we have a pro fighter come here and share as much as Jason has in this thread - I for one appreciate the mind's eye view. Thanks Jason, good luck!

Sorry Jason for the "terrible fighter" comment. I feel bad now. Lol. I was hoping to stir the pot.
