Rich Clementi and Luigi Fioravanti Cut From UFC After UFC Fight Night 17 Losses

The UFC has officially cut lightweight fighter Rich "No Love" Clementi and welterweight fighter Luigi Fioravanti immediately after their losses at the UFC Fight Night 17 event.

Clementi has lost back to back bouts against Gray Maynard at UFC 90 and then to Gleison Tibau at UFC Fight Night 17.  Prior to those two losses, he had attained a 6-fight winning streak.  Unfortunately for Clementi, he'll have to look for a new home but expect to see him back in the UFC octagon again as he has done so in the past.

As for Fioravanti, he has been 2-2 in the UFC.  His latest UFC record has forced officials to kick out the Florida fighter due to his inconsistency.  He too has been booted out of the UFC before, but has proven to fit in with other UFC competitors by defeating fighters outside of this organization.  Fioravanti lost his last fight to hard-hitting Anthony "Rumble" Johnson via TKO-strikes in the first round at UFC Fight Night 17.
