This is the reason I didn't wanna see Ricci/Fletcher, cause the loser was gonna get cut.

That said BJJ isn't that effective in high level MMA, he got out wrestled by Parke and was involved in a close stand up battle with Ricci. He isn't quite UFC Calibre. His self promotion is heaps and bounds above other UFC fighters but it won't be enough to keep him in the UFC.
I couldn't name a good match-up for him in the UFC 155 division but there are plenty of big name UK Fighters I'd love to see him fight.

Heck BAMMA Should start signing some 155 UK guys and try to do an 8 man tournament. It'd sell. It's just BAMMA struggles to do more than 2 fight cards a year

Just two awful performances where he was dominated by the simplest of game plans.

I honestly thought he was very fortunate to even make it to the finale. Had Sotirolpolous not picked a BW to fight him, Freakshow would not have won the semis

Damn I am disappointed to hear that news. Rabi and I got to interview Dr. Freakshow, and he was very cool to chat with. One of the best interviews we ever had. Hopefully he can get some more wins and get another shot.

I'm very dissapointed to hear this news. I was hoping the UFC would give him one more fight but, I guess it was bound to happen eventually.

He showed NOTHING in actual UFC fights. I'm not a hater but he's not UFC material.

Sad to see the Freakshow go cause he was my favorite fighter from the Smashes but the dude had no clue in the cage. He has to pay less attention to his crazy costumes & more attention to his game plans.
