Middleweight Thales Leites and welterweight Tamdan McCrory, who were both reportedly released by the UFC following losses last Saturday at UFC 101, will remain on the UFC roster, UFC President Dana White today told Yahoo Sports:
UFC president Dana White wasn’t aware of plans to drop both Leites and welterweight Tamdan McCrory and said he would reverse those decisions.
They won’t be cut, White said Thursday night.
McCrory, who suffered a split decision loss to John Howard at UFC 101, is 3-3 in 6 UFC bouts, while Leites, who unsuccessfully challenged Anderson Silva for the middleweight title in April, dropped a split decision to Alessio Sakara on Saturday.
