    UFC cuts middleweight Jake Rosholt

    Jake Rosholt will have to fight his way back to the UFC.

    The middleweight fighter today confirmed the Ultimate Fighting Championship has dropped him from its roster of middleweight competitors.

    The termination comes a week after Rosholt (6-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC), a three-time NCAA Division I national wrestling champion and four-time All-American, suffered a first-round submission loss to Kendall Grove at UFC 106.

    "Not a good day," Rosholt wrote on his Twitter account. "Just found out I got cut by the UFC."

    Rosholt, who turned pro in July 2007 after his successful amateur wrestling career at Oklahoma State University, defeated Nissen Osterneck in his WEC debut before the organization's middleweight division was folded into the UFC. Rosholt suffered a submission loss to Dan Miller in his February octagon debut but rebounded for a submission win over Chris Leben in August.

    The Leben victory, which came at UFC 102, earned the Las Vegas-based fighter a $60,000 Submission of the Night bonus.

    Rosholt's 6-2 career record includes four wins via TKO and two via submission.

    That sucks, seemed to me that he showed progress. I watched the grove fight the next day and I knew it was about to end and figured Rosholt would win that.

    Dream might want him, hoping to see a judo guy sub an accomplished wrestler.

    I guess Dana isnt messing around with that two losses your out clause in the contract.

    I hope Strikeforce picks him up, I would like to see him on showtime or cbs.

    Sucks right now for Rosholt, but I think it's probably best in the long run. Let him go to a few smaller shows and tighten up his defense.

    Agreed, especially in his stand up.. Although, I think that he got "caught" by Grove.

    No question he got caught. Only question is why did he tap so quickly. Didnt' seem like he even tried to escape.

    I always thought Jake Rosholt's mental toughnes was one of his strengths as a wrestler- he was able to beat out arguably more talented athletes at the NCAA championships when it really counted. Apparently this hasn't transfered over to MMA. Hopefully Jake improves his defensive weaknesses and gets another shot at it.

    I agree with vak attack that this is the best thing for rosholt. He clearly is not ready for prime time. He needs to get 6-8 fights on some small shows, build up his experience in the cage ie striking defense and submission defense both technically and learning how to fight through them.

    I think he comes back 2 or so years from now and can be a force as i think he has the upside.
