Hey so am I completely out of it or did anyone know that Tyson Griffin got cut from the UFC in November?

LINK

I would have put this in the MMA news forum but I did not know if this was made public before lol. Not too surprised tbh though.

i remember when it happened. i believe he cut down to 145lbs and lost a few there before getting cut. by the time he got cut most of us had kind of forgotten about him. he lost relevance in the scheme of things.

I remember it because I was disappointed Nate Diaz never got to fight him with the bad blood of Tyson leaving their fold, or the way he did, and Nate calling him out but I guess losing 4 of your last 5 and getting booted is payback enough.

ya I remember him going 1-1 at featherweight but I just kinda thought he's taking some time off so this is news to me. He also looked okay against Gamburyan.

I believe the UFC let him go because he was suspended for a year for mary jane

It's a shame, really. Griffin has the potential to be a great fighter, especially at 145.

If you remember in his last 145 fight he failed to make weight and that got KO'd really quickly.

Yea Bart Palaszewski pretty much sent him packing after he knocked him out very badly in the very first round.
