    He gave everyone he lost to hell!

    Lost to Rustam Khabilov, Francisco Trinaldo, Gleison Tibau, all close fights and all these guys are world class. He fought to a draw against Leonardo Santos who just knocked out Kevin Lee and beat Adriano Martins!

    I'm so glad he's not around anymore. He's as bad as WMMA

    He is just one of those fighters i cant get excited to watch. He seems to have a low ceiling as well.

    5-3-1 in the UFC and a very dull fighter. Other than Reza madedi, I've never heard of any of the guys he beat.

    So yeah, maybe he could have been kept around but I don't see it as being a huge mistake by the UFC.

    Agreed, esp w/ the lack of Irish fighters and incredible Irish market. Plus, had some controversial decisions in there as losses.

    He was never going to be a contender and is fairly boring to watch. He doesn't add anything to cards.

    Wouldn't be surprised if he's been making comparable money to what he made in the UFC fighting on the European circuit recently.

    weird seeing Reza still in the UFC when Parke beat him with relative dominance. He was also victim of questionable Brazilian officiating as well. Fighting on the next BAMMA card in Northern Ireland vs another UFC cut Paul Redmond. I think he wins.

    He was a good fighter on TUF. I had to laugh when they threatened to kick him our of the house he balled his eyes out though.

    I remember Conor calling him out for flying the Northern Irish flag instead of the Tri Colour in the UFC. Norman missed his red party night the poor lad.
