“I JUST GOT CUT FROM THE UFC!! WOW… APPARENTLY THEY DID NOT LIKE MY LAST FIGHT. THANKS @ufc FOR THE OPPORTUNITY. TO MY FANS, I’LL BE BACK! The Boss himself told me the fight was good, got a performance $, was in a good win STREAK before that last fight. I DONT UNDERSTAND! If I knew I was getting cut I would got the easier fight.”
