Major MMA promotion UFC terminates contracts with three fighters
MMA promotion UFC has terminated the contract relationship with three fighters. It is noteworthy that two of them hosted in the last numbered tournament of the organization UFC 278, which took place on the night of August 20-21.
One of the losers of the last show was the American light heavyweight Harry "Hurricane" Hunsaker (7-6) who lost by TKO 1 to Tyson Pedro. After that, Hunsaker's record in the promotion became 0-3.
Also at UFC 278, Chinese Yanan "Mulan" Wu (13-6) from the bantamweight division suffered a setback - she lost ahead of schedule (TKO 2) to Lucy Pudilova. This was Yanan's sixth UFC fight and fifth loss here.
The third fighter to say goodbye to the UFC this week is Brazilian welterweight Claudio "Hannibal" Silva (14-4). He fought on July 23 in London at UFC Fight Night 208 and was defeated on points by Nicholas Dalby. The failure was Silva's third in a row, although he had previously been on a five-win streak in the promotion.
