KALIB STARNES FIRED BY UFC…DID HE JAKE IT AS A PROTEST?
Turns out that we were right, he was kicked to the curb by UFC according to Yahoo’s Kevin Iole.
Starnes was on his horse the entire fight and refused to engage with Quarry even when he mocked on the Canadian by jogging in the ring and fighting with one hand in the final 30 seconds.
One judge was so irked by Starnes that he scored each round 10-8 in favor of Quarry.
Now the internet chatter is suggesting Starnes fought like a puss to stick it to UFC. According Neil Davidson with the Canadian Press, Starnes wanted out of his UFC contract….
Canadian fighter Kalib Starnes, vilified by mixed martial arts fans for his inactivity in a bout against Nate Quarry at UFC 83 on the weekend, has asked to be released from his UFC contract.
But the 33-year-old middleweight from Surrey, B.C., declined to discuss what happened in the lopsided fight Saturday night in Montreal or why he wanted out of the UFC, saying he would comment further once his UFC exit paperwork was complete.
“Until that happens, I don’t feel comfortable talking any more about it,” Starnes told The Canadian Press on Monday from his training base in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
“Personally, I couldn’t be happier to be released from my UFC contract,” added.
Don’t be surprised if Starnes come out firing at the sport’s No. 1 villian Dana White in the near future.Explore posts in the same categories: MMA, UFC
