TUF “Smashes” Runner Up Colin Fletcher (8-3 MMA, 0-2 UFC) has been given his walking papers from the UFC.

“The Freak Show” expressed his opinion on the decision by writing on Twitter:

“Is it just me or does cut after 1 official UFC fight seam a little harsh I know I didn’t perform my best ! Neva mind.”

Fletcher defeated Team Australia’s Ben Wall and Richie Vaculik on the show, earning a spot in the finale to fight Norman Parke. Parke dominated the fight and Fletcher failed to earn the $100,000 contract with the UFC

The UFC offered Fletcher another shot at the big show, this time against another TUF contestant Mike Ricci. At UFC 158, Ricci won all three rounds and earned a unanimous decision. Fletcher once again came up short, and dropped two fights consecutively.
