Chase Sherman Released From UFC Contract

Heavyweight fighter Chase Sherman’s second run in the UFC has come to an end after the promotion released him from his contract.

The 32-year-old Sherman’s second chance in the UFC had come in 2020 and began positively with a TKO victory against Ike Villanueva.

Unfortunately for ‘The Vanilla Gorilla’ that would prove to be the only win as he’d go on to lose his next three fights in a row, starting with a unanimous decision loss to Andrei Arlovski.

Another loss on the scorecards came next against Parker Porter, while in January of this year he was submitted in the first round by Jake Collier.

Sherman had also had a previous run in the UFC between 2016-2018, during which time he mustered only a 2-5 record, with his wins coming against Rashad Coulter and Damian Coulter.

That leaves Sherman with a 3-8 UFC record altogether, though he is still 15-9 for his career as a whole.
