Despite the hype behind Denis Kang prior to his contract with the UFC, many expected him to be a huge threat in the UFC welterweight division. With a UFC record of 1-2, the North American promotion has announced the release of Kang for his weak effort to stand out amongst the rest of the 170-pound weight class. Kang holds an overall MMA record of 32-12-1, which will easily place him back into any fight promotion including Strikeforce, MFC, DREAM or World Victory Road.
Here’s the list of fighters that were released by the UFC earlier this week:
- Former PrideFC welterweight grand prix finalist- Denis Kang
- Former WEC welterweight contender- Brock Larson
- Former IFBL welterweight champion and lightweight fighter of Spike TV’s Ultimate Fighter 9 season- Jason Dent
- Former lightweight fighter of Spike TV’s Ultimate Fighter 8 season- Roli Delgado
