While nobody can knock him for not taking tough fights, Reese Andy, after going 0-2 in the UFC has been released by the promotion as confirmed by his agent, Ken Pavia, on Thursday.
“In the short term, he was released from the UFC,” Pavia told MMAWeekly Radio.
Since moving to the UFC from the now defunct International Fight League, Andy took two very tough fights, but unfortunately things didn’t go his way in either. His first bout against Brandon Vera did not live up to expectations for either fighter, but Vera was able to squeeze out a decision win.
Andy’s next fight took place at UFC 92 where he lost to former “Ultimate Fighter” competitor, Matt Hamill, by TKO in the 2nd round.
While the release is disappointing for Andy, his agent says that they are already working on finding him a new workplace and offers are starting to come in since his release became official.
“We’re going to re-build him a little bit, you know Strikeforce is going to Seattle so that might give us a chance to have him fight in front of his local fans. I’ve actually had some interest in him already,” Pavia commented.
