After losing in the finals in last season’s light heavyweight tournament on The Ultimate Fighter, the UFC still had high hopes for Vinny Magalhaes. After all, the man is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu as well as a two time Brazilian National heavyweight champion.

However, after suffering a second consecutive loss in the UFC to Eliot Marshall at UFC 97 on April 18, Magalhaes will be looking for a new place to fight.

Well I cant say I'm shocked. He is great at BJJ but he seams to lack the biggest thing that makes a fighter good and that's heart and the drive to fight. All your really good BJJ fighters or any fighters all have tons of heart and they have to have it to be able make it in the MMA game. Maia, Nog, and many more great BJJ guys all have tons of heart and that warrior spirit. I think if he could work out the mental side he could be a great fighter.

i had high hopes for him. darn it i wanted him to get somewhere in this sport but he lacks the must important thing like everyone else says. Mind, Heart and Spirit.. tech, athletism and grappling tons of wrestlers and bb have it. But not the first 3.

I saw this coming. Vinny was a boring competitor and he lost two fights in a row. Doesn't suprise me.

Vinny will be back, he is young, talented, and at this point very one dimmensional, he will realize what it takes and will be back within 3 years.
