Despite being 2-1 in his last three bouts inside the octagon, Tamdan McCrory has been released by the UFC following a recent loss. UFC matchmaker Joe Silva notified a representative for McCrory on Monday evening, according to a report on the popular Underground forums.
McCrory is coming off a loss against John Howard at last Saturday's UFC 101 event. He exits the UFC with an even 3-3 record in the promotion, with wins over Pete Spratt in his UFC debut, Luke Cummo and Ryan Madigan. His losses came against Akihiro Gono, Dustin Hazelett and the aforementioned Howard.
McCrory earned a shot in the UFC after winning the first eight bouts of his career, most of which took place in the local Northeast scene. Overall, he sports an 11-3 MMA record, with 6 wins by TKO or KO and 4 by submission.
At only twenty two, it is likely that McCrory will return to the UFC in the future. He may return at a different weight however, as he recently complained about difficulties in cutting to welterweight. The 6'4" McCrory may move up to middleweight as he looks to build size to fill his tall frame.
