Pretty sad but I can't say it wasn't expected. He did face some pretty solid competition in his last few loses. Hope he can pick himself back up in another solid promotion. The dude is always exciting to watch

Don't like this cut either but it seems much more appropriate.

Exactly! The UFC is keeping some pretty low level guys and getting rid or losing some pretty badass ones. Poor significant get choices as well.

Big fan of Menjivar so this sucks but he's definitely going to find a home somewhere pretty quickly.

I think everyone is a Menji fan and if you're not, you just suck at life...but the fact remains that we all pretty much knew going into the HH match that he was on thin ice and obviously that loss got him his walking papers....sucks, but like a lot of you said, some orgs are gonna end up getting a lot better and Menji while on the down side of his career can still beat mid level talent, imo.
