ROH & MLW Star Released By The UFC This Week

Ring Of Honor (ROH) and Major League Wrestling (MLW) performer "Filthy" Tom Lawlor is no longer a UFC fighter.

While dealing with a USADA suspension issue, Lawlor was informed this week that he has been let go by the leading MMA promotion on the planet.

Lawlor, a veteran of The Ultimate Fighter reality show and several pro fights inside the world-famous UFC Octagon, stated the following after being informed about his UFC release this week:

"All things come to an end and it was inevitable that so would my time in UFC. Today I was informed that I will be released by the UFC despite my USADA suspension being nearly over and my previous requests for a release being denied. While the timing is unexpected, hopefully this opens the doors for me to continue with my mixed martial arts career as well as in the squared circle (squared circle is an old term for pro wrestling). Combat sports is one of my life’s great loves and I look forward to showing and sharing that with the fans as soon as possible."
