The UFC has decided to release middleweight prospect Jake Rosholt from its roster of fighters. The news comes via his manager Ted Ehrhardt,
â€œI didnâ€™t think heâ€™d be released …. He had one fight left on his contract, and we thought heâ€™d at least get that. He had a good performance [against Grove] up until he got caught. He was winning the fight. Heâ€™s young. Weâ€™ll go out and get some wins and be back …. Weâ€™ll look to get some quick fights in, three or four fights in the first six months of the year, and then weâ€™ll go back and talk with [UFC matchmaker] Joe [Silva] …. Weâ€™ve got plenty of time. I think heâ€™s going to be one of the top middleweights.â€ [Sherdog]
Rosholt was putting on a good performance against Kendall Grove before “Da Spider” wrapped his long legs around Rosholts neck to secure the triangle choke at UFC 106. With a 6-2 record and no fights in his career ever going to a decision, I’m sure well see him back in the UFC.
