In a move as surprising as Megan Fox looking good in a tight dress it appears the UFC has released lightweight Gabe Ruediger after a knockout loss to Paul Taylor a week-and-a-half ago at UFC 126. The performance marked Ruediger’s second consecutive defeat since winning six straight and re-joining the promotion midway through 2010.
News of Ruediger’s release was reported by MMAWeekly. It also looks as though “Godzilla” is considering a drop down to featherweight after explaining he hadn’t needed to cut a significant amount to make 155 for the bout with Taylor.
Ruediger had also fought for the UFC in 2006 after a successful run in WEC but earned one-and-done status after being knocked out with a body shot by Melvin Guillard at UFC 63.
