Tom Egan (3-1) has been released from his contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Fighters Only learned this afternoon.

The Irish welterweight made his debut against fellow organisation debutant Jon Hathaway (10-0) at UFC 93 in Dublin, but lost by TKO.

Egan was informed of his release in an email last night, according to his coach John Kavanagh of SBG Dublin.

No suprise. I kinda feel bad for him since he was just used by the UFC to give the Irish fans somebody to root for.

Im alittle bit suprised because its usually if you lose two straight fights, your out.

But also Egan is only 3-1, he needs to go get some more fights.

I'm sure they'll take him back once he gets some experience/wins under his belt. It was ****** up how they used him for the Irish crowd. Threw him in with a more experienced English guy to add insult to injury. Usually they give a hometown favorite a can
