British MMA lost another fighter from the UFC roster on Monday after it was revealed that Colin Fletcher has been cut.

Fletcher came through the TUF Smashes: UK v Australia series, reaching the Finale where he met compatriot and friend Norman Parke.

Unsurprisingly, given their friendship, the pair failed to put on a great show as Parke claimed victory, and Fletcher was granted another chance when he fought Mike Ricci in Montreal.

Another decision loss left the Brit on dangerous ground, and after a positive weekend for British & Irish MMA that saw Ross Pearson, Brad Pickett and Conor McGregor all win, Fletcher has been released from the roster.

"Is it just me or does cut after 1 official UFC fight seem a little harsh? I know I didn't perform my best! Neva mind," Fletcher tweeted.

He leaves a lasting impression, having entertained during the TUF series with his trademark clown disguise.
