Bart Palaszewski is the latest UFC vet to announces that he’s been let go by the promotion, as the featherweight confirmed his release Wednesday. Palaszewski is coming off a submission loss to Cole Miller at the April 13th, TUF 17 Finale. Prior to that the 29 year-old fighter was handed unanimous decision losses by accomplished featherweights Hatsu Hioki and Diego Nunes.
Palaszewski relayed the news on his official Twitter account.
I have been let go by the @ufc. I would like to thank them & @seanshelby for all the opportunities and great times. We shall see whats next.
In Palaszewski’s Octagon debut, at UFC 137 in October, 2011, he knocked out Tyson Griffin in the first round. The victory was the 36th of his 50 fight plus career.
In terms of what’s next, one would think Palaszewski will get plenty of offers, and the Poland born fighter has already relayed he’d be interested in fighting for the nation’s KSW promotion.
Thanks for all the love guys. Maybe @KSW_MMA will have me would be cool to go back to the old country. It has been way too long
Earlier in the week it was revealed that UFC featherweights Antonio Carvalho and Pablo Garza have also been let go by the promotion.
