Sean McCorkle released by the UFC

The UFC’s roster took a hit in both sexiness and hilarity this week when the organization handed heavyweight Sean McCorkle his walking papers after having been beaten in back-to-back outings.

Five Ounces of Pain confirmed McCorkle’s free agency with a source close to the fighter.

The soundbyte-friendly “Big Sexy” racked up nine straight wins before making his UFC debut in successful fashion by submitting PRIDE veteran Mark Hunt a little more than a minute into the opening round of their bout last September at UFC 119. However, McCorkle was left defenseless from strikes by Stefan Struve after an epic amount of trash-talk between the two through media in his follow-up appearance and was most recently choked out by Christian Morecraft a few weeks ago at UFN 24.

McCorkle, who has a strong following based on his online accessibility and humorous observations, exits the UFC with a 10-2 record overall and nine finishing performances.
