Wednesday was a bad day for several fighters who lost at “UFC 101: Declaration”. After learning about Tamdan McCrory being cut, UFC officials have also given pink slips to Thales Leites, George Roop and Dan Cramer. Leites comes as a shock to most as Dana White stated at the post fight press conference that Leites was not in danger of being cut.
Thales Leites went 5-3 in the UFC losing his last two. Leites became heavily critized following his title fight with middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Leites wanted nothing to do with Silva’s superior striking and had no solution on getting the fight to the ground.
George Roop best known for his time on season eight of “The Ultimate Fighter” has gone 1-2 losing to Shane Nelson and most recently George Sotiropoulos.
Dan Cramer was part of season seven’s “The Ultimate Fighter” and only has two professional fights under his belt. At UFC 101 he lost a decision to Matt Riddle on the un aired preliminary portion.
