Jay Hieron (19-4), who has had some issues with Strikeforce, says that he's officially been released from the promotion. He tweeted:
"I finally got my release from SF... Y'all know what I'm about to do!!!!!!!"
"I have been threw a lot of Shit this past year but I have trained the whole time. So all WWs take notice I'm coming for somebodys head..."
The former IFL champ has won 7 straight fights, and 9 of his last 10, but he hasn't fought since January, when he beat Joe Riggs -- in the undercard of Strikeforce: Miami. Shortly after he completed his contract on that last fight, there have been lots of mumblings of his desire to get back in the UFC. So I'm guessing "Ya'll know what I'm about to do!!!!!!" doesn't mean he's excited to start fighting at King of the Cage.
If he does make his return to the UFC shark tank though, there would certainly be a lot of potentially interesting bouts that could be forged for the #14 Ranked Welterweight.
