The Ship Be Sinking

Tamdan McCrory Released

Tamdan McCrory released

Having actually seen the fight that got him released, I can’t say I completely understand this. Perhaps they want him to get experience on smaller shows; but his last two losses were to a top-class jiu jitsu whizz and a guy who out-wrestled him when he was clearly blown up from cutting too much weight, which doesn’t exactly scream “overmatched at this level”. In their position I’d have probably kept him around for one more fight at 185 just to see what he actually has at the new weight. I suspect he’ll be back in less than two years, in any case.

  1. I really had no problem w/ this as others did. The guy went 3 and 3 in the UFC against C-Level competition. And C level is stretching it. Now he wants to move up to middlweight? I’m just not buying that he’ll be any better there.

    He’s 22 years old. Let him try building up his record at MW elsewhere and if he looks great and throws some decent wins together, I bet the UFC would welcome him back.
