Ben Saunders released by the UFC (Jr. Albini too)

Discussion in 'UFC Discussion' started by Deleted member 510653, Feb 12, 2020.

  1. First and foremost, my sincerest apologies to the Ben Saunders fan club, but the Colonel had to go eventually. I know he had a fancy submission 5 years ago, but ya gotta get those Ws to keep going.

    And Albini too, who pioneered a makeshift diaper out of a pair of Reebok trunks.. Truly innovative for his time this guy. Well fuckin' A, too many characters gone. To be honest, the UFC released a bunch of guys with losing records who were kinda nobody types, so this latest haul was justified imo. We'll see how many more losses Mike Perry can rack up and if he can beat Burkman's record before he's finally sent to Bellator.

    This is like the 3rd+ time Saunders has been released or something. Is normal.

    Best of luck to Ben in his future endeavors.
    The guy was a kill or be killed kind of fighter and that’s always entertaining.
    I know he’s a fellow sherbro too

    Albini might need a diaper change, looked good to start then kind of crapped the bed in his last fights

    I don't think so.

    Saunders has betrayed Bellator, so I guess no.
    Albini - I would rather see him in Rizin in a freak show.

    wouldnt mind seeing Saunders back over at Bellator. somehow i always thought Bellator was a better fit for him. Also would be fun to see him compete in Rizin.

    Albini has already signed with another promotion and has a fight booked for March or April.

    Ben's taken a lot of punishment through the years. Maybe switch to coach position? Nothing against him of course.

    That's what I was thinking, he's 36 and has his BJJ black belt. He could coach anywhere.
