On the post-fight press conference, Dana White said that Kimbo Slice (4-2, 1-1 UFC) and Paul Daley (23-9-2, 2-1 UFC) are both getting cut following their showing at UFC 113, one for a bad performance in the fight, and the other for his poor decision making after.

Kimbo‘s turned in a poor showing and succumbed to a second round TKO loss to former NFL player, Matt Mitrione (2-0), leading the UFC president to say that the former YouTube star’s UFC run is over:

“Kimbo is done. We’re going to cut him.”

Daley on the other hand, after months of trash talking between the two, lost a decision to Josh Koscheck, then threw a cheap shot after the final bell rang. Dana White, obviously angered at the situation, said Daley will never fight in the UFC again:

“[Paul Daley] He’s done. I don’t give a sh*t if he’s the best 170-pounder in the world. He’ll never come back here again. I don’t care if he fights in every show all over the world and becomes the best and everybody thinks he’s the pound-for-pound best in the world. He will never fight in the UFC ever again.”

“There’s no excuse for that. These guys are professional athletes. You don’t ever hit a guy blatantly after the bell like that whether you’re frustrated or not. It was probably one of the dumbest things I’ve ever seen.”
