Light heavyweight Seth Petruzelli has been cut by the UFC after losing his second straight bout in the Octagon since returning to the promotion earlier this year. Petruzelli’s most recent defeat came by way of a first round TKO to Karlos Vemola at UFC 122 a little less than two weeks ago.

News of the professional separation has been confirmed by Five Ounces of Pain with an involved source.

Petruzelli went 5-0 outside of the famous eight-sided cage, including his notorious victory over Kimbo Slice in October 2008, after dropping a pair of bouts in the UFC on the heels of completing a stint on the Ultimate Fighter Season 2. Known for his heavy-hands and colorful personality, “The Silverback” is 12-6 overall with ten TKOs to his credit.
