Mike Patt’s run in the UFC has come to an end.
Sources have informed FiveOuncesOfPain.com that the jiu-jitsu black belt was released by the promotion shortly after his TKO loss to Brandon Vera this past Saturday at UFC 96.
Patt was the recipient of a series of vicious leg kicks from Vera that eventually grounded him and forced the referee to call a stop to the bout at 1:27 of round 2.
Patt’s lifetime record in the Octagon fell to 0-2 with the defeat. He had lost his debut in the organization at UFC 88 this past September following a first round TKO at the hands of Tim Boetsch.
Prior to his unsuccessful tenure in the UFC, the Dayton, Ohio native was an impressive 12-2.
