No this isn’t a reprisal of Stephen Sondheim’s famous broadway piece. Colin Fletcher, a scary looking clown for sure, has been CUT from the UFC.
Needless to say Fletcher is pretty bummed out that ZUFFA kicked him out after just “one official” fight. Fletcher Tweeted his feelings.
Is it just me or does cut after 1 official UFC fight seam a little harsh I know I didn’t perform my best ! Neva mind twitter.com/dr_freakshow/s…

Incidentally we aren’t sure why he and other media outlets are claiming he only fought one official fight. As his first fight was with Normal Park at UFC on FX 6 and his latest loss against Mike Ricci at UFC 158. Maybe Collin only thinks that PPV is “official”? Talk like that will surely get you booted for bad PR. (we kid, we kid)
The British MMA fighter originally came to us from the TUF Smashes: UK vs Australia series and made it up to the UFC on FX 6 Finale where he went up against a his buddy Norman Parke and lost by decision.
Fletcher would be given another chance to make up for his loss in Montreal against Mike Ricci at UFC 158. Fletcher ended up getting scoed in this match up and that would be the last time he would fight for the UFC.
Dana White has made a promise to “spill more blood” with fighters on the roster, and it looks like Fletcher is the first of many to come.
The man that was the “Freakshow” is no more. His clown apparel will likely be missed. . . by some.
