He may have a great nickname, but Pat “Awesomely Awesome” Audinwood did not live up to it in his two fights in the UFC, and he has been released by the promotion.
The news of Audinwood’s release was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fighter on Thursday.
Prior to entering the UFC, Audinwood was 9-0-1 with four submission wins to his credit. Unfortunately during his brief run with the UFC, he went 0-2 with losses to Thiago Tavares and John Makdessi.
The New York based fighter is the latest to receive their walking papers from the UFC after a run of shows in November and December.
Earlier this week, MMAWeekly.com first reported the release of submission wizard Dustin Hazelett from the promotion as well, and more cuts could happen in the coming week.
