John Howard is the latest casualty from recent losses in the UFC as the Massachusetts’ fighter has been released from the promotion.

Howard’s manager Malki Kawa of First Round Management confirmed the news to MMAWeekly.com on Monday.

Going 4-3 during his time with the UFC, Howard has been an exciting fighter with true fire power in his hands, picking up wins over names like Dennis Hallman and Daniel Roberts along the way.

This sucks. I've always liked Howards. He always brought it in his fights. Hopefully he ends up somewhere like Strikeforce or Bellator.

I don't understand this one. They have cro-cop another shot, along with hardy. Why not Howard as well. He's just as exciting has hardy, even more so then grandpa filipovic (ufc era cro-cop)

Because CroCop is a legend, John Howard is not. It's the same reason Wanderlei was able to stick around for so long.
