UFC Lightweight Jacob Volkmann Cut from UFC Roster | UFC NEWS

February 20, 2013 9:35 am 6 Comments

UFC Lightweight fighter, Jacob Volkmann, announced last night via Twitter that he was cut from the UFC.  Earlier today, he posted that “I[t] wasn’t @danawhite[‘s] decision to cut me it was Joe Siva’s.”


Volkmann (15-4), who fights out of White Bear Lake, Minnesota, saw action most recently on the undercard of UFC 156, where he lost via rear-naked choke to Bobby Green.  This loss was one of only two in Volkmann’s last eight fights.  Volkmann has a 6-4 record in the UFC.


As a fighter, Volkmann brought NCAA D-1 wrestling expertise in a style that many critics decry as smothering and boring.  Even still, Volkmann is a tough fighter who has a solid skill base; though not for the UFC, we can certainly expect to see him fight again soon.
