“The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes” runner-up Colin Fletcher is two and done with the UFC.
The fighter, perhaps best known for his “Freakshow” nickname and colorful cage entrances, today announced the news via Twitter.
“Is it just me or does cut after 1 official UFC fight seam a little harsh I know I didn’t perform my best ! Neva mind,” he wrote.
Fletcher (8-3 MMA, 0-2 UFC), who represented Team U.K. on “TUF” this past year, defeated lightweights Ben Wall and Richie Vaculik to advance to the show’s tournament final. However, he then suffered a decision loss to Norman Parke in the final, which took place at UFC on FX 6 and counted on his official pro record.
Fletcher got another fight with the UFC, but this past month at UFC 158, he suffered a shutout unanimous-decision loss to Mike Ricci. It ultimately led to his UFC release.
Prior to joining “TUF,” Fletcher turned pro in 2008 and won a few titles on the U.K.’s regional circuit. He went 8-1 with seven submission victories before his short UFC stint.
Fletcher didn’t share any plans for his immediate fighting future.view original article >>
