Bye-bye, Freakshow...

Quote:
British MMA lost another fighter from the UFC roster on Monday after it was revealed that Colin Fletcher has been cut.
Fletcher came through the TUF Smashes: UK v Australia series, reaching the Finale where he met compatriot and friend Norman Parke.
Unsurprisingly, given their friendship, the pair failed to put on a great show as Parke claimed victory, and Fletcher was granted another chance when he fought Mike Ricci in Montreal.
Another decision loss left the Brit on dangerous ground, and after a positive weekend for British & Irish MMA that saw Ross Pearson, Brad Pickett and Conor McGregor all win, Fletcher has been released from the roster.
"Is it just me or does cut after 1 official UFC fight seem a little harsh? I know I didn't perform my best! Neva mind," Fletcher tweeted.
He leaves a lasting impression, having entertained during the TUF series with his trademark clown disguise.

I like the guy - mostly because he has a cool nickname - but his last performance was pretty poor. Maybe he can win a few and bounce back... or maybe he just isn't that good.

I think he deserved another shot against lesser opponents.

That said I can't see him being anything other than mid-tier at best.

I think it's the latter unfortunately and I think he's probably a little old to make significant changes and come back and impress the UFC.

Saw this coming too. Not bothered, he sucks. Makes Dan Hardy look like Anderson Silva. He has a gimmick, thats it.

There's alot more in him that we've seen in those two fights, though i doubt he'd ever do anything extraordinary at UFC level, his striking isn't really anywhere near where it would need to be to be knocking out UFC level guys and his grappling - his true skill - looked flat in those fights.

He'll probably make OK money headlining for BAMMA unless Bellator fancy giving him a try.

Probably for the best. He just isn't a UFC caliber fighter at the moment. I'd like to see how he'd do in Bellator though.
