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.
