Jason Knight has been released by the UFC. “They cut me after that last loss,” Knight told BJPENN.com this week. Knight has been fighting for the UFC since 2015 and has recorded nine fights inside the Octagon. After losing his first fight on the organization, Knight won four in a row over the likes of Jim Alers, Dan Hooker, Alex Caceres, and Chas Skelly. The winning streak put Knight into the rankings and many believed he could very well be a future title contender. However, he then fought Ricardo Lamas and lost the fight by TKO in the first round. That loss set Knight back, as he would then lose his next three fights with his most recent fight being at UFC 230 in November against Jordan Rinaldi. Fighters Craig ‘Thundercat’ White and Naoki Inoue have also been released. Jason Knight among latest round of fighters released from the UFC @Wild will have tears in his beer tonight!
