World Shooto welterweight champion, Willamy "Chiquerim" Freire relinquished his title at the Japanese event to sign with the UFC, but did not live long in the event. After overcoming injuries, the fighter debuted at UFC Fight for the Troops 2, last weekend, but losing a unanimous decision was enough for the event to cancel his contract, according to reliable sources have informed the Tatame. Like him, Amilcar Alves, training partner in the Nova União, was also cut with the defeat at the event.
