UFC Releases Leites and McCrory After All

Tamdan McCroryDespite a report earlier Friday that UFC President Dana White would reverse the releases of middleweight Thales Leites and welterweight Tamdan McCrory, the UFC has officially cut both fighters.

MixedMartialArts.com and MMAjunkie.com confirmed the releases on Friday afternoon:

…according to mixedmartialarts.com, which is co-owned by McCrory’s manager, comments were misinterpreted and McCrory has, in fact, been released from the UFC’s roster. MMAjunkie.com has since confirmed Leites, too, remains released from the organization.

“It seems that the story was not an exact representation of the conversation between White and Iole, but seemingly an honest misinterpretation,” the mixedmartialarts.com report read. “As it stands, McCrory will not have his next fight inside the UFC octagon but has been fielding offers from other organizations and may start to work his way up to the middleweight division.”
