Nate Mohr latest confirmed UFC release

News of recent releases made by the Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to circulate and has confirmed that lightweight competitor Nate Mohr has been cut.

Mohr, 8-6, was let go from his contract by the UFC shortly after losing during last month’s UFC 93 event in Dublin, Ireland.

Facing German wrestling specialist Dennis Siver in a non-televised undercard bout, Mohr was TKO’d at 3:27 of round 3 after getting hit by a spinning back kick and then subsequently finished by punches.

The fight vs. Siver was Mohr’s first since UFC 79 in December of 2007. Facing Manny Gamburyan, he was forced to submit at 1:31 of round 1 following an Achilles lock. He was then sidelined for over a year after undergoing knee surgery.

Overall, Mohr is just 1-3 while competing under the UFC banner but it is believed that he could be brought back if he’s able to accumulate a series of wins outside of the organization.

He joins a confirmed list of recent releases by the UFC that includes Rich Clementi, Luigi Fioravanti, Eddie Sanchez, Christian Wellisch, Reese Andy, and Derek Downey.

    Another good cut. So far, the only one that has been remotely interesting is Rich Clementi. And he still was only 5-5 in the UFC.

    Time to get rid of these guys who can’t cut it, and find new guys to give them their chances.

    I can understand the cut. But I will never support a guy losing his job.

    The UFC can’t employ everyone, but it still sucks to hear.

    If Strikeforce is looking to fill its undercard for the April event a matchup between Mohr and Jorge Gurgel might be a fun fight to watch. Both will probably go in there to knock each others heads off.

  • Rich B says:

    I thought Gurgel was getting Melendez at that April Strikeforce show???

  • Meers311 says:

    I believe the Gurgel/Melendez matchup was just something Strikeforce was considering at this point. Hopefully though they stop considering it, because it makes no sense.
