Jason MacDonald released by the UFC

Jason MacDonald, who has competed in his last ten fights for the UFC, has been released by the promotion.

MacDonald confirmed in his blog for Sportsnet.ca that the release was due to his recent losses in the UFC. He's lost two straight and three of his last four.

His only string of back-to-back victories was his first two UFC fights where he was initially dubbed the "TUF Killer" for his submission victories over Ed Herman and Chris Leben.

His last two fights were first round losses to Wilson Gouveia and Nate Quarry.

MacDonald said he remains in good terms with the UFC and the release was a business decision. The Canadian is open to fighting for Strikeforce, in Japan and at home for Maximum Fighting Championships.
