Travis Lutter Released From His UFC Contract

Travis LutterTravis Lutter appears to be the latest victim in the UFC’s roster purging effort. Lutter notified today of his release from his UFC contract.

This comes as no shock. Lutter competed last weekend at UFC 83 in a losing effort against Rich Franklin. Lutter almost secured a victory with an arm-bar in the first round, but Franklin was able to roll out of it. Lutter subsequently gassed out in the second round to the point where Lutter could barely keep his arms up. Franklin picked him apart and the fight was stopped.

Lutter is perhaps best-known for failing to make weight in his title-shot against UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, after winning The Ultimate Fighter Season Four.

Lutter admittedly has taken the media and fans’ reactions to his losses and failure to make weight hard, so it will interesting to see if he will be able to overcome this latest setback and rebound in another organization.
