Team Alpha Male fighter Justin Buchholz is the latest casualty of the UFC 109 fighter cuts as the Alaskan native has been released from his contract following a loss to Mac Danzig last weekend.
The news of his release was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fighter on Friday.
Following a stint of fights in organizations like ICON and EliteXC, Buchholz moved over to the UFC in 2008, and entered its lightweight division.
After going 1-1 including a win over Corey Hill, Buchholz ran into some tough fights against Terry Etim and Jeremy Stephens, and he looked to bounce back when facing Danzig at UFC 109.
A back and forth battle ensued, but Buchholz came up short and lost a unanimous decision. For now, Buchholz will get back to training with Urijah Faber and his camp in Sacramento, Calif., as several teammates get ready for upcoming fights.
