No way this sucks. His move up a weight-class was something i was looking foward too. Really is a shame to see him get released.

I didnt see this coming at all. Normally they cut guys who have lost a few in a row, not one. He wasnt gonna make a run at the title but I am surprised to see it.

He grabs a 1st RD TKO, then loses a SD and they cut him. C'mon. It's not like he even wanted to stay at 170 either.

McCrory was planing on moving up in weight classes maybe they felt they didn't need him at a higher weight class. Now not saying that's the reason and from what I have heard about his last fight it was a real let down by both fighters. Also shouldn't read to much in to this as there maybe reasons we don't know about going on behind closed doors.

No big deal. He wasn't very good. You cant keep losing to guys and expect to keep fighting in the UFC. If you look at who he lost to then ask your self who the UFC can give him he can actually beat. You realize those guys are not in the UFC and neither should McCrory.

While McCrory is definitely one of my favorite fighters, everyone needs to remember he's only 22 years old. Some fights in Strikeforce or anywhere really would help him out greatly, especially if he is indeed going to move up to 185, fights in some smaller organizations would be tremendously helpful. We'll definitely be seeing Tamdan back in the UFC in the future.

i don't know why he would be released i did learn that george roop, danillo villafort and thales leites where cut as well!!!!!!!

mccrory loses a split and he is gone with a 500 record
makes no sense but if aurelio is back in ufc mccrory will be back next year
i just think with all the signing's lately ufc is cutting back alot

Leites should be gone. A boring fighter that will never reach the pinnacle he reached back in April...which was curtisy of a gift thanks to Marquart.

Roop needs to streak up some wins and then he'll be back, perhaps at 145. Villefort should have been given another chance, but I can certainly see why they let him go, he can be back with some more solid wins.

Tamdan McCory being let go makes 0 sense to me.

I think the cut is fair by the UFC. They probably want him to get 1-2 fights at 185 and if he does okay than im sure the UFC would be willing to re-sign him.


Nate Loughran (former UFC fighter) fought at 185, lost to Credeur and asked the UFC if he could drop to 170 and UFC told him to get 1-2 fights under his belt at 170 at the smaller promotions and then the UFC would sign him (obviously if he wins the fights of course). I think this will be the same deal with McCrory, especially if he is going to fight at 185.

I'm sure he will be considered as a replacement fighter if some 1 gets injured in the future.

Hell They brought Tito Ortiz back so I have a feeling we might see him come back in the near future. Let the guy change camps or trainers and take a year off then come back on maybe a TUF. That is if the show stays around I haven't checked what they are getting 4 ratings.

All and all I liked the guy, sucks that they let him go.
