PRO MMA (promma.info) has confirmed with Foupa-Pokam’s agent, Ken Pavia, that his client has indeed been cut from the UFC roster. “That is confirmed and accurate. We can rebuild him,” Pavia stated after being asked for confirmation of the release.
Foupa-Pokam, better known as “Professor X”, earned his spot in the UFC after amassing a 20-9 professional MMA record, with a seven fight win streak. The UFC had big expectations for the devastating middleweight striker from France, but those expectations were short lived.
