Riki Fukuda Cut From UFC | UFC NEWS

The fighter cuts have continued for The UFC, as middleweight Riki Fukuda announced his release from the organization via Twitter. Fukuda lost a unanimous decision to Brad Tavares earlier in March at UFC On Fuel TV 8 in Japan.

Jon Fitch, Riki Fukuda’s training partner at American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, suggested Fukuda sign with World Series of Fighting. Fitch recently traveled to Japan to corner Riki Fukuda for his fight against Brad Tavares. WSOF is a new mixed martial arts organization led by kickboxing legend Ray Sefo. They are the new home of Jon Fitch after his controversial release from the UFC.
