i don't understand why everyone keeps talking about his 'glass chin' when it is very obvious his release was not due to his performance. whatever he said it was bad enough to have his own manager call him an ass, not to mention cause him to get fired. it is most likely money related like people have been speculating, but point remains that it wasn't due to his loss imo.

Yeah I agree Freak it has nothing to do with in the ring. He is one of the hottest prospects in MMA's HW division.

Dang, unexpected. I would have like to see a few more fights out of him in the UFC. I'm sure SF will pick him up.

Fairly simple-couldn't sustain momentum. 7 second KO might be impressive, but he couldn't back it up. And he's hurt too.



couldnt back it up? besides the Mike Russow fight where he beat the dude up for three rounds then got rocked by a standind hammerfist by a 250+ pounder
hes had 11 minutes of fight time in 6 fights? UFC is just swichind rosters because there are too many KO power meavy weights just like when they got rid of most of the BJJ guys @ 165+185 besides the poster boys last year

heres todds managers text thats been posted on the underground.

“Well, I’m not sure exactly what the problem or problems were. I tryed [sic] hard to avoid, but Dana wasn’t listening. It unfortunate, but Todd’s an ass.”


Improper quoting of Davis on Duffee...."It unfortunate, but Todd's an asset and he will keep on fighting." link

In his UFC tenure, Duffee won every second of the fights he was in except for the last few of the Russow fight. He's demonstrated a lot of talent, and dismissing that because of a "glass chin" reminds me of people dismissing Overeem years ago because he couldn't take a hit. Or even more recently, the sort of silliness that led people to think Velasquez wasn't damn good because Kongo rocked him a few times.

Because of the small size of the UFC's heavyweight division, it might be a good thing Duffee can be a prospect elsewhere. He'll be back in the UFC some day.

Now im not saying you're incorrect or that this isnt the official story. But this just seems like a complete "trying to save my job" last ditch effort.

Could be....on either part too, Davis or the interviewer.

Too bad for Duffy and for us as fans. That guy has HL reel KO writen all over him in every fight he is in. His fight with Russow...I was very impresssed with the pace he kept until he got KTFO. i hope he can find a home somwhere and get back to the UFC somday!?
