News of recent releases made by the Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to circulate and FiveOuncesOfPain.com has confirmed that lightweight competitor Nate Mohr has been cut.
Mohr, 8-6, was let go from his contract by the UFC shortly after losing during last month’s UFC 93 event in Dublin, Ireland.
Facing German wrestling specialist Dennis Siver in a non-televised undercard bout, Mohr was TKO’d at 3:27 of round 3 after getting hit by a spinning back kick and then subsequently finished by punches.
The fight vs. Siver was Mohr’s first since UFC 79 in December of 2007. Facing Manny Gamburyan, he was forced to submit at 1:31 of round 1 following an Achilles lock. He was then sidelined for over a year after undergoing knee surgery.
Overall, Mohr is just 1-3 while competing under the UFC banner but it is believed that he could be brought back if he’s able to accumulate a series of wins outside of the organization.
He joins a confirmed list of recent releases by the UFC that includes Rich Clementi, Luigi Fioravanti, Eddie Sanchez, Christian Wellisch, Reese Andy, and Derek Downey.
