    After his dismissal due his instagram post, it probably just hit him really hard.

    Because of white privilege.

    No seriously. Calling a 19 year old australian aboriginal kid racist for using the word ':eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:' is white privilege.

    Saul is still fighting, at last as of October. Tyler hadn't fought since TUF, at least according to fight finder.

    Well Kajan, who got him in shit, is Native American. But it was stupid regardless of who called him on it.

    no idea. I don't know what the visa issue was, so that could have a lot to do with it.

    Tyler didn't make it in over an instagram post, not his talent.

    Seems like he just made up his mind that if he wasn't going to make it into the UFC he didn't care

    It was probably very disheartening for a young guy like him to be blackballed by the ufc at such an early age.

    If I'm 21-22 and the UFC is telling me I'll NEVER receive another opportunity, what is even the point?May as well move on and find another career while he's still young

    Askren's making that OneFC money, though. He's pretty much set and never needs to fight for ufc.

    He's currently signed by the WSOF, but he was signed in like 2014.

    No other updates so far.

    I think Dana was pissed because he lied about something in his Visa application

    My guess is that the UFC coming out and saying even if he won he wouldn't get a contract, is pretty final and if your goal is to fight in the UFC and it is 100% not an option, then what's the point.
