Jason Lambert latest fighter to drop off the UFC roster

In recent days, news has broken that the company attempted to reduce Fabricio Werdum’s salary and when he did not accept their new offer, a decision was made not to make a counter offer.

In addition to Werdum departing the organization, FiveOuncesOfPain.com learned earlier today that middleweight Jason Lambert is now also a free agent. Soon after hearing the news from our initial source, we were able to confirm the development with Matt Stansell, Lambert’s manager with NCFC Management.

Lambert’s departure comes after he had sustained three consecutive losses while inside the Octagon. His most recent defeat took place at UFC 88 in September, where he was submitted in the second round by Jason MacDonald in his debut as a middleweight.

Prior to UFC 88, Lambert had competed as a light heavyweight and began his UFC career with a 3-0 record with victories against Rob MacDonald, Terry Martin, and Branden Lee Hinkle. His most notable win took place at UFC 68 in March of 2007 during that preceded Randy Couture’s upset unanimous decision victory over Tim Sylvia. Facing Renato “Babalu” Sobral, Lambert scored an upset of his own following a knockout punch delivered at 3:26 of round 2.

This really isn't a surprise since he lost three in a row.

Its no surpirse. He lost 4 of his last 5 fights and was on a 3 fight losing streak. I was surprised they gave him this last chance against Jason McDonald.

He is a guy that has tons of potential but just can't seem to get it to work for him. I actually like him, oh well.
