There was a time when he looked like he could do big things in the UFC.

Out from the sport for over a year, debuting in a new weight class and gets cut after his 1 loss at his new weight?  Wow.

People thought he was gonna be a title contender prior to the Lil Nog fight. Always wondered if he had eye issues, it seemed like he couldn't even see punches coming from Southpaws Phone Post

I never enjoy hearing this type of news, especially when the said fighter had a lot of potential.

Man i like Cane but he just seemed to lose his mojo. I hope he starts killing again on the regional circuit and comes back strong.

Yeah. Not cool. Maybe Bellator or One will give him a shot. At 185 and making sure he has the gas I think he can meet the potential everyone saw for him at 205.

Bellator would be great for him unless they don't want to sign someone who was cut by the UFC Phone Post

Honestly I was surprized when he didn't get cut after the Stanislav fight.

Cane of course is one of the 23 current or former UFC light-heavyweights to have moved down to middleweight over the past five years.

Guess it didn't work out for him.

He's 1-5 since Cantwell. I'm surprised they even gave him a shot at another weight before cutting him. Certainly not the norm. Wish him the best.

Remember after Shogun destroyed then #5 ranked Chuck, people said that he should be fighting Luis Cane for a title shot, not Machida. LMAO if that fight had happened. Phone Post

Not surprised. He looked very hesitant in Rio.

Since you bring up Cane and Machida in the same post, after Rashad lost to Machida at UFC 98, Cane was one of the most popular choices as to who Rashad's next opponent should be.

How times change.
