Francis Carmont cut from UFC, announces via Facebook
Francis “Limitless” Carmont has been cut from the Ultimate Fighting Championship according to his latest post to his Facebook page.
The message translated from French to English reads “I announce to you that after 6 wins and 3 defeats, I am more fighting for the UFC. Nevertheless, it is determined that I continue combat sports. A friend told me, following my fight against Thales, “you will understand but it is perhaps the best thing that you arrived to your career, it will make you stronger.” At the time I confess not to have understood, but after reflection, I understood and I proceeded to my criticism. I infer that in sports as in life, there are many and different stages. In seeking perfection on the technical point, I strayed the fighter by instinct, seeking more score points that to finish my opponent. These latest defeats urge me to grow every day. Life is a journey of learning and my career is far from finished. Thank you for your continued support. ”
The French fighter started strong in the UFC going 6-0 but then dropped his last three fights to Jacare Souza, C.B. Dolloway, and Thales Leites.
At just 32 years of age and 22-10 record Carmont is far from done. The Georges St. Pierre protege can rack up a few wins outside the octagon and will likely earn a spot back on the Zuffa roster in the near future.
