Fletcher looks too crazy for UFC to want to keep on the roster. The tat and fake teeth weren't doing him any favors. I knew he was history when Ricci beat him, he's not marketable enough for them.

He hasn't looked too great after the show, but I'd like to see him back.

I'm sure he can rack up a few more wins and have another shot. Phone Post

To be honest his skill set probably isn't up to par just yet. Phone Post 3.0

He's had two official UFC fights, the finale wasn't an exhibition on the show...

And I like the dude, but he didnt really show himself to be at a high enough level or exciting when fighting guys as good or better than him. Phone Post 3.0

I was saying this from the start. Not hating just observing, he needs to spend a few years elsewhere sharpening his skills.

Gimmicks dont win fights. Phone Post

I had fairly high hopes for him during TUF but his two real fights were awful. The gimmick is shitty but it's even worse when this"crazy guy" with the awful tats and fake teeth appears to be totally unwilling to take any sort of chances during his fights, even when he's clearly losing.

I wanted Freakshow to succeed.  He's a huge lightweight and with a good solid team and coaching he could probably be a decent fighter.  But, 0-2 in the UFC and you're gone, especially with the forecasted cuts.

He didn't look comfortable in his 2 fights in the UFC, but on the show he looked great and he seems like a very nice person, i hope he can make his way back to the UFC.

He looked terrible in both fights i saw him in.


Slow, plodding, terrible spinning attacks that never land.



No big loss imo.

I can see why they cut him. He's a nice guy though so hopefully he changes camps and we see him back in there again soon!

I hate to see anyone lose their job, MMA or in real life, but I agree - he seemed like a stereotypical slow white guy. Granted so did Ricci. Neither of them appear to have any power - not even in the first seconds of the opening round.

The fight looked like a reasonably intense sparring match at any reputable school. Definitely not something that makes me want to spend $60 on a PPV.

It could also be Dana hating on the costume shenanigans. Some times when he has it out for someone...

I personally think they should have given him one more fight. He has personality, a decent skill set and didn't fight boring. That said, both of his UFC fights were forgettable so it's hard to be too upset over him being cut.
