Damn flyweight losing yet another decent fighter
He was still a pretty high level fighter. Not sure why they got rid of him, really. His 3 fight losing skid includes the #2 guy, the guy who just fought for the belt, and the guy who is about to fight for the belt.
Why the fuck would they release Formiga?
The division is already thin for fuck's sake.
He might be done at the top level TBH. Over 30 fights and over 15 years in the game. He's looked bad recently
He's one of the most underrated fighters of the past decade though easily
Is a fine resume
Either kill the division, or dont. Its getting real annoying now.
Not a good release I don't think. He's still an excellent gatekeeper and the fight with Moreno was very close.
More proof that the UFC doesn't even pay attention to the Flyweight division.
To make room for the Miranda Grangers of the world on the main card
i guess his formiga wasnt juicy eh
I was always a fan of Formiga.
People always act like "release" means it was just the UFC's decision. It's entirely possible his contract ran out, and he asked for too much money and decided to sign elsewhere.
Either way, solid fighter but his days as a top contender are over. 35 is very old for the FLW division and he has a lot of miles on him.
It be like that sometimes
I liked Formiga his fights were usually entertaining
He had a great run, but he's only getting worse and worse while making good money (at this point) in a shallow division.
Sad to see him go but not shocked in the least (especially with his fight style and recent losing streak). At least there is good money to be made in Rizin or ONE at lower weight classes, so should be able to find a home over there.
Makes no sense. Division is thin as can be and he’s still a top 10 guy. Yes, he’s lost 3 in a row, but all against top 5 guys. Stupid.
What the fuck? What a stupid decision, probably one of the worst releases I've seen. FLW is not deep enough to be letting guys like Formiga go.
Might as well cut Romero too.
He was always talented and Im a fan but considering hes never got a title shot in one of the shallowest divisions ever, maybe hes better off in ONE or Bellator. Always seemed he was one fight off a shot.
Every fighter that beat him, other than Moreno at the moment, went on to fight for the title in their very next fight. UFC should have kept him for his role as a title challenger gatekeeper.
