It’s a new age for the UFC in regards to how quickly a trigger can be pulled if a fighter isn’t successful in the Octagon. The latest proof of that is welterweight Kenny Robertson, who has been released from the promotion after only one fight.
The news was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by Robertson’s manager Nick Thompson on Thursday. FiveOuncesofPain.com initially reported the released.
Robertson came into the UFC with an undefeated record of 10-0, including a win over former “Ultimate Fighter” competitor John Kolosci.
He fell short in his lone appearance in the UFC, losing by TKO to veteran fighter Mike Pierce just last weekend at UFC 126.
According to his manager however, Robertson doesn’t expect to be on the sidelines very long looking for a new job.
“We are already negotiating with several top companies,” Thompson told MMAWeekly.com.
Robertson will look to bounce back sooner rather than later and then shoot for a return to the UFC.
