Mackens Semerzier Released From UFC Contract

March 25, 2012 11:21 am by bjpenn.com staff 19 Comments

Former WEC featherweight turned UFC featherweight Mackens Semerzier has been released from his UFC contract following his most recent UFC defeat.

One of many WEC imports Mackens found early success inside the UFC’s Octagon when he dominated “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 12 cast member Alex Caceres and choked him out in the first round.

He then went on to face Robert Peralta on the UFC on FOX 1 preliminary card, but suffered defeat via TKO. Once replayed it was clear Peralta’s victory was the result of an illegal headbutt and the California State Athletic Commission overturned the defeat and ruled it a no-contest.

Mackens then had a scheduled rematch with Peralta but Peralta withdrew from the bout with injury and Semerzier was forced to step in against Daniel Pineda at UFC on FX 2. He lost via first round submission and the UFC has cancelled his contract as a result.
