UFC Cuts Ties With Diego Brandao After Incident

Former Ultimate Fighter winner Diego Brandao saved himself being cut by the UFC back in 2015 when he earned a pair of wins.

However, after another incident outside of the Octagon, the UFC could not keep Brandao around, cutting ties with him earlier this week.

Brandao (20-11) suffered a submission loss to Brian Ortega in January, putting his Octagon record to 6-4.

Earlier this month, he was arrested on four felony counts after an incident in New Mexico. Brandao was accused of pistol-whipping and punching men outside of a strip club.

He had also tested positive in January for a banned substance.
