Salmon taking a break from the UFC

Through the UFCJunkie.com website, many people have become big fans of Sean Salmon. The site not only sponsored Salmon for his two UFC fights but hosted semi-regular columns from the former amateur wrestling standout.

Salmon lost his UFC debut to Rashad Evans at a UFC Fight Night event in January and followed up the disappointing performance with a quick loss to Alan Belcher at UFC 71. He had one more fight remaining on his UFC contract but Salmon has revealed in his latest UFCJunkie.com column that his last fight will delayed and that he’s been granted permission to fight for other organizations.

What’s likely to happen is that Salmon will fight for smaller, regional promotions under the watchful eye of the UFC. They will retain the option of bringing him back to the big show at a later date. This is something they’ve done with several young fighters so Salmon’s arrangement is not uncommon.

Salmon is very candid in his latest column and I consider it a must read.

    Salmon is forthright as can be. His UFC success has been bitter, to say the least.

    also, that tiny smiley face at the bottom is creeping me out.
