0-3 Bobby Voelker Will Not Be Released Says UFC Boss
Bobby Voelker (pictured, right), who has now gone 0-3 inside the octagon, will apparently get another chance to snatch his first elusive UFC victory.
After going 4-1 in the Strikeforce promotion, Voelker moved to the UFC and lost to Patrick Cote, Robbie Lawler and William Macario.
Voelker fought Macario last weekend at UFC 168, and suffered a lopsided decision loss where he was beaten and battered throughout all three rounds. He put up a gutsy and honorable performance, and UFC President Dana White took notice.
â€śHeâ€™s 0-3, and heâ€™s not going anywhere. He took the Robbie Lawler fight on short notice, and tonight he was busted up and keeps moving forward, keeps trying to win,â€ť White said after the bout.
Even Macario lauded Voelker’s toughness. â€śHe hurt his hand trying to knock him out, so he feels from this point forward that no one is going to be able to knock the guy out,â€ť Macario said through a translator.
Voelker has always shown a level of grit and perseverance in his fights, and this has led him to have a secure spot in the UFC, even with three straight losses, at least for now.
â€śWe donâ€™t cut guys like that,â€ť White said.
