Four, including Nobre, released by UFC

Friday, January 25, 2013

Following the release of 9 fighters last week, the UFC have added another 4 to the chopping board.

Ken Stone fought 4 times under the UFC banner going 2-2. Stone was last in action at UFC 150 where he suffered a 17 second knockout loss to rising star Erik Perez. That loss had snapped a 2 fight win streak that the Bantamweight had put together which included wins over Dustin Pague and Donny Walker. Stone initially signed for the UFC when the WEC merger was completed.

Also on the cut list is Byron Bloodworth who went 0-2 on his UFC contract. He debuted against Mike Easton at the ‘UFC Live 6′ event and was stopped in the second round. We then didn’t see him for over a year until his return at UFC 155, where he suffered another TKO loss to the prior mentioned Erik Perez.
