Yair Rodriguez gets cut

Postby philphan » Fri May 11, 2018 6:14 am

Dana White says he's cut Yair Rodriguez for refusing to take a UFC 227 fight at Staples Center

Mexico's Yair Rodriguez, who balked at accepting an Aug. 4 UFC 227 fight against Russia's Zabit Magomedsharipov, has been cut from the organization, UFC President Dana White told the Los Angeles Times Thursday night.

Rodriguez (11-2), the UFC's No. 11-ranked featherweight, hasn't fought since a humbling second-round technical-knockout (doctor's stoppage) loss to former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar on May 13, 2017.

White chafed that Rodriguez previously turned down an offer to fight No. 7-ranked Ricardo Lamas before tweeting that a Times report based on information from White that he was to fight Magomedsharipov (15-1) was "#FakeNews."

"The guy's off a year, rejects a fight with Lamas and then doesn't want to fight a guy below him in the rankings?" White asked Thursday night. "He can go somewhere else. We have no use for him.

"He calls that fight fake news. This is real news."

White said a letter informing Rodriguez of his dismissal was sent earlier Thursday.

Rodriguez, 25, appeared to be on the fast track toward a title shot when he dominated B.J. Penn in January 2017, but his one-sided defeat to veteran Edgar shelved him to injury recovery, and White's efforts to get him back in the octagon were met with resistance.

The surprise is that Rodriguez was positioned for a prominent pay-per-view return against a talented opponent who is 3-0 in the UFC, a spot that could've helped a victorious Rodriguez launch himself back upward in a division that will offer a July 7 UFC 226 title fight between champion Max Holloway and Harbor City's Brian Ortega.

A possible landing spot for Rodriguez could be the Combate Americas circuit.
I'm so fucking high.

''Double wrist lock,to an americana, switched to kimura,turned to figure 4,transitioning to an armbar.
while attemting an Ude-garami, & a keylock.. opponent escapes so switch to Gyaku ude-garami and a reverse keylock and get that: 'bent armlock',like a V1 armlock,a chicken wing,a some sort of paintbrush submission attempt or hammerlock or a twisting hammerlock and you win by reverse arm entanglement

Wow. Dana taking out some misplaced rage on one of the most exciting and promising contenders in the division who also is one of my favorite fighters.

Its like when your girlfriend does something to make you mad but you dont say anything then yell at someone in traffic and think "hmm why did i do that"

Dana is sick of fighters trying to call their shots, Conner, Bisping, Woodley all brought Dana to a simmer he just boiled over on Yair.....Stupid Dana.

Good. He’ll go to Bellator. :tup:

Jesus Christ what a pussy. Sure Yair was going to get wrecked by Zabit but for fucks sake what a poooosy. Combate America’s would be wise to sign him.

So who is next for Zabit then?? I would like to see Emmitt personally

Lmao, this is stupid, why cant they feed Yair a can like they do with Sage Nortchcutt. Or give him winnable fights like they were doing with Ortega, and Conor. I dont know why they are going to give a promising prospect away.

Sage still has promise in the UFC hype machine. That ass whooping that Yair took from Frankie will never go away.
