Rolles Gracie Added To Post-UFC 109 Cuts

Rolles Gracie put on an awful performance in his UFC debut, losing via TKO to Joey Beltran. Now, Gracie has been let go by the promotion. Rolles had this to say to Gracie Mag about his performance:

I understand the fans are disappointed. I appreciate all the support I received and I wanted to put on a good show. What can I say? It wasn’t my day. I mean, this is MMA, not golf. The fans are a different breed and when they are angry, they definitely let you know. With the internet, Twitter, e-mail, Facebook…everyone is so accessible and with the click of a button, you can tell an athlete exactly what you think of his performance. That’s just the way it is these days and I’m glad to be a part of a sport where the fans are so enthusiastic.

Gracie clearly needs more seasoning as a mixed martial artist and I’m sure the UFC is going to need to see some major improvements made to his cardio before they consider bringing him back.
