Now UFC President Dana White has severed ties with Starnes, although there's some question of whether he resigned or was fired. White says:
"I don't care if Starnes says we cut him, or he asked to be let go - at the end of the day if you're a professional fighter, and you are fighting in the UFC in front of your hometown crowd, you have to show up to fight."There are some rumors that Starnes is happy to be out of UFC and that he wants to sign with another promotion, but why on earth would any promotion want him now? Starnes made a fool of himself on Saturday and alienated MMA fans, and he has a long way to go to repair his image.
