Will Chope has been cut by the UFC and his bout with Diego Brandao scratched from tonight's card after revelations about his bad-conduct discharge from the Air Force for domestic violence.

Wouldn't surprise me if they cut Abel Trujillo too. His name is being brought up a lot relating to his domestic abuse.

UFC: WE GOTTA PROTECT THE BRAND! You can beat up guy's at bars, sell drugs, heck even rough up your wife if your a top ten or have potential, but I swear if you lose your first fight you will be canned if you have an arrest five years ago for domestic violence.


Seems like his ex-wife and Chope are friends, she's forgiven him. I feel bad for the ex-wife and daughter their the ones getting hurt the most by this.

That's too bad, was really looking forward to this one.
In the last like 3/4 events there has been a fight cancelled on weigh in day or fight day, which is really unusual.

Where is the ufc sending these guys for background checks? Whoever is doing the background checks is not digging hard enough. But anyway, I'm glad he's cut. I would rather have Paul Harris than this scum.
