According to MMAJunkie.com, Duffee’s manager, Alex Davis confirmed the report as multiple sources knew about the move. Davis declined to comment further on the matter or speculate as to the reason behind the UFC’s decision.
Heavyweight Todd Duffee (6-1) came into the UFC with the quickest KO in the organization’s history over Tim Hague (11- 4) in just 7 seconds. He was defeated by Mike Russow in the third round of his last fight by what most would say a “upset KO” even though he dominated the first two rounds. Duffee was expected to face Jon Madsen on October 23, 2010 at UFC 121 but was forced off the card due to a lingering knee injury and replaced by Gilbert Yvel (36-15).
If given a second chance, do you think he could become the next heavyweight champ? Was this a wise decision for the UFC to cut him in a division that could use him?
