"I would like to be fighting," Lutter told MMARated.com today. "To be honest, I'm a little frustrated that I haven't found a home."

When we spoke to Lutter immediately following his release close to five months ago, he mentioned that he had preliminary talks with the now-defunct IFL and Affliction. Apparently, nothing came of those talks.

"I might have to take a fight on a smaller show just to get my name out there and build up my career again because it's a little frustrating that my career has stalled," Lutter said.

Its a little frustrating that your a top level fight, Who struggles to make weight, And gasses alot too.

So much potential, So much waste......

In the past Lutter has seemingly completely ignored conditioning and paid for it twice. That being said, he has outstanding jiu-jitsu. Maybe not the "Michael Jordan of Jiu jitsu or the Larry Bird, or Kobe Bryant...errr..shut up Goldberg...but he was very close to finishing off the top 2 MW's (Rich Franklin and Anderson Silva). He has too much talent to not be given a second chance. Someone give him a shot.

i think he could act as a gatekeeper if macdonald doesn't mind sharing lol but with his work ethic and the fact that he pisses off the wrong people i don't ever see him being a contender

the guy is capable of beating anyone at MW, and as mentioned he has come within seconds of doing so against 2 of the best, but i think the fact that he didnt make weight in the biggest fight of his career left a bad taste in the mouths of the ufc brass and has essentially blackballed him.

I hope he goes to the AFL so I can not pay to watch him fight.

I ranted about this when he was cut. Dumbest move ever. Yes he has a problem getting his work ethic together, but when its there.... Travis Lutter is a beast. It really is a shame he couldn't see that himself before fighting Franklin or Silva.... a real shame.
