UFC Suddenly Fire Ultimate Fighter Legend

There have been tons of stories going on within the MMA and UFC world as we recently caught word of Dana White being shown on video in an abusive altercation with his wife.



That’s not all, though, as the UFC has parted ways with Francisco Trinaldo. The competitor completed his UFC deal this past October and wasn’t re-signed by the company, UFC officials confirmed to MMA Fighting on Wednesday.

“Massaranduba,” the last remaining member of the 2012 season of TUF Brazil 1, lost a decision to Randy Brown in his final octagon appearance. The 44-year-old veteran won back-to-back decisions over Dwight Grant and Danny Roberts in his previous bouts.

In total, Trinaldo competed 26 times in the UFC since 2012, as he would fight in multiple divisions.

He scored key victories over Paul Felder, Yancy Medeiros, and Ross Pearson during a long seven-fight winning streak between 2014 and 2016.

His record would be 7-5, but it seems like it was a rather mutual choice to move forward without Trinaldo.

As we go back to Dana White – it does seem that White will be taking a step back from the UFC as he figures out where to go from here. Not only have fans of the UFC asked for Dana to step down and totally quit the operation; but there have also been calls for him to raise awareness about domestic abuse.

Currently, there is no definitive answer on where the UFC will go from here as it pertains to Dana White and surely, there needs to be something done to drive the point home that domestic abuse is never tolerated.
