- JUSTIN BUCHHOLZ LATEST FIGHTER RELEASED FROM UFC
Friday, February 12, 2010 - by Damon Martin - MMAWeekly.com

Team Alpha Male fighter, Justin Buchholz, is the latest casualty of the UFC 109 fighter cuts as the Alaska 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.

Following a stint of fights in organizations like ICON and Elite XC, Buchholz moved over to the UFC in 2008, and entered their lightweight division.

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 as several teammates get ready for upcoming fights.

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.

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.
