After notching a fourth defeat in his last five fights it looks like Luiz Cane has been released by the UFC. His latest stumble came on October 13 against Chris Camozzi when the two locked horns at UFC 153. Cane lost the bout by way of decision, his second straight in Brazil after beating Eliot Marshall in March 2011.
Cane’s release was confirmed by his manager in a conversation with TATAME.
The 12-5 Cane looked like he would go fairly far in the UFC, losing his debut by disqualification before stringing together a trio of consecutive victories. Eleven of his wins have involved some form of stoppage including ten TKOs. Among his notable triumphs are those over Jason Lambert, Steve Cantwell, and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou.
