Vinny Magalhaes To Retire If Released By The UFC

Vinny Magalhaes left his gloves inside the Octagon at UFC 163, leaving many to wonder if he was done as it came after a 14 second knockout loss to Anthony Perosh.

“I have one more fight left in my contract, but we all know that it doesn’t mean much and there’s a chance that I get cut,” said Magalhaes to MSN. “Before this fight I said I deserved to get cut if I didn’t win. I’m waiting for UFC’s decision, anything can happen, but I really don’t care, man.”

If the UFC does cut Magalhaes, it won’t be anything new. He was released by the promotion in 2009 for going 0-2. He returned in 2012 and took his first UFC win. Before the early loss to Perosh, Magalhaes dropped a decision to Phil Davis at UFC 159.

So far, Magalhaes is still employed by the UFC.
