DaMarques Johnson has revealed that he’s been cut from the UFC after his latest loss at ‘UFC On Fuel TV 5’.

“And the hits keep on coming… No longer a UFC fighter,” Johnson told his Twitter followers earlier today.

Johnson had been called in as a late replacement to fight Gunnar Nelson at the event in the UK late last month, but not only did he lose the bout by a first round rear-naked choke, but he also missed weight for the contest by 7lbs which Dana White later told reporters had angered matchmaker Joe Silva.

That may have been a contributing factor in Johnson being cut, but it shouldn’t disguise the fact that the former TUF season 9 finalist had been struggling to find form in the UFC for some time.

The 30 year-old had lost his last three fights, all within the last six months, and had an overall record of just 4-6 inside the Octagon.

  1. I like Johnson. He was losing alot but I feel he will be back. He was showing great improvements in his ground game despite his consecutive losses. Looks like UFC is cleaning house.
