The Ultimate Fighter 3 Champion Kendall Grove has been released by the UFC according to his Facebook page. Grove recently lost to Tim Boetsch at UFC 130 by a lopsided unanimous decision, making for his fourth loss in six fights.
Grove was consistently inconsistent since winning the TUF 3 title by defeating Ed Herman in 2006. Grove was 7-6 in his UFC career with notable wins over Alan Belcher and former UFC middleweight champion Evan Tanner, who died a few months later due to extreme heat exposure.
Grove becomes only the third TUF champion to be cut by the UFC, following TUF 4’s Travis Lutter and TUF 8’s Efrain Escudero.
