It is with great disappointment that we here at ProMMA.info report Justin “The Viking” Wren has been released from the UFC. FanHouse, citing an unnamed source, reported the news on Thursday.

22-year-old Justin Wren impressed UFC President Dana White on season ten of the Spike TV reality show “The Ultimate Fighter” by submitting UFC veteran Wes Sims with an arm-triangle that put the big man to sleep in the first round.

Following the win, Wren advanced to the quarterfinals, where he faced eventual winner of the show (and seasoned vet) Roy Nelson. Wren lost a controversial two-round majority decision to Nelson, in which most viewers argued should have at least gone to a third round.
