• Joe Stevenson is released by the UFC!

  • It seems a large portion of MMA news these days is about fighters being released. The latest fighter to get the boot from the UFC is Ultimate Fighter season 2 winner Joe Stevenson. Stevenson won the event in 2005 and has been competing for the UFC ever since. Back in 2007 Joe was given a title shot against BJ Penn for the lightweight championship after stringing together wins against the likes of Yves Edwards, Kurt Pellegrino and Melvin Guillard. Unfortunately Stevenson lost his fight against BJ and had to go back to the drawing board. After the loss against Penn for the title Joe had a mixed bag of results and then hit a bad string of 4 losses in a row. These losses were to George Sotiropoulos, Mac Danzig, Danny Castillo and finally Javier Vazquez. This marked the end of Joe Stevenson’s career in the UFC for now. Hopefully we will see Joe competing in some other promotion/event soon.


    Thanks guys,
