Will Campuzano Tweets UFC release

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp

Another fighter has been trimmed from the UFC roster as the promotion starts separating the wheat from the chaff of the past six months.

It's amazing how quickly the climate changes. Just three weeks ago the thought of a fighter getting released from the UFC at 0-1 or 0-2 seemed a remote possibility. An expanding schedule of fight cards and increasing demand for talent meant that it appeared the UFC was prepared to give fighters a lot of room to work. Not so fast...

A couple weeks later and we're back to the old standard, with another fighter on a two fight skid, this time former Legacy FC flyweight champion Will Campuzano. Campuzano shared the news of his release on Twitter.

A former WEC and UFC talent, Campuzano will head back to the regionals with a 1-6 record in his three tours under the various Zuffa promotions. He's shown himself to be a quality fighter at the lower levels of MMA and at only 27 years of age, it's hard not to think he has a lot of time left in the sport if he chooses to keep it up. But, it's difficult to see that he could get another UFC call up anytime soon. Maybe a few years down the road. Until then, it may be a hard fought battle back to the top for Campuzano.

Stay tuned for more news as I doubt this is the last we've seen of the UFC roster adjustments this week.
