After going 0-2 upon being invited back into the UFC, the Boston Herald is reporting that lightweight Dan "The Upgrade" Lauzon has been released by the organization.

Lauzon's friend and business partner, Joe Cavallaro, told the Boston Herald of Lauzon's release and says that he expects Lauzon to make it back into the UFC after gaining some more experience.

"His contract was terminated," said Cavallaro. "He's just got to go back and get more experience. Danny is a very, very, young guy," said Cavallaro. "He is a tremendous fighter. He needs to get the right training, the right camp and get a handful of wins again.

"I was talking to Joe Silva about it and he said 'We'll definitely have him back. We love him, he's a tough kid. He just needs more experience, a consistent camp.' He did learn a lot from this fight."

Lauzon was cut on the heels of a loss to "TUF" winner Efrain Escudero at UFC 114: Rampage Vs. Evans. Dan is the younger brother of Joe Lauzon and the two engaged in a public falling out over Dan's training habits during the lead up to the Escudero bout. The youngest of the fighting Lauzons holds a 12-4 overall MMA record and a 3-0 record in the UFC. His UFC losses came to Spencer Fisher, Cole Miller and Efrain Escudero, respectively.

[nitpick]
That should be an 0-3 record, eh? If he was 3-0 he probably wouldn't be having his contract terminated.
