After losing three of his last four fights, Norman Parke is reporting that he’s been cut by the UFC.
Recently the Northern Ireland lightweight posted the following comments on Facebook:
I just wanna say a huge thanks to the ufc for giving me the great opportunity to compete at the highest level in combat sports.. Iv had many great memories that will stay with me forever!! Im now looking to fight this summer so what ever comes up il be ready to go!! On any show anywhere..
Thank you to all my fans for following my journey.
I will be back
This aint no April fools joke.
Although Parke (21-5-1) has just one win in his last four outings, this is a bit surprising. The fighter is the former TUF Smashes winner and Parke has gone 5-3-1 in the UFC to date. Further, two of his last three defeats were via split decision. Most recently Parke lost by UD to Rustam Khabilov.
That said, lightweight is a ridiculously stacked division.
