Menjivar Recieves UFC Pink Slip
After a 4-4 run in the UFC Ivan Menjivar’s time with the biggest MMA promotion has come to an end. The news broke earlier today as MMAfighting.com published an article featuring quotes from Menjivar’s manager Mitch Mayberger saying his client has been cut by the UFC.
This was “The Pride of El Salvador’s” second stint in the UFC as he dropped a unanimous decision to Matt Serra in the octagon in 2004. Menjivar leaves the promotion on the heels of a three fight skid in which he dropped bouts to Urijah Faber, Wilson Reis and most recently Hatsu Hioki.
All is not lost as Mayberger says Menjivar plans on continuing with his MMA career.
“I will be feeling out offers and discussing with Ivan and his head coach Firas Zahabi and doing whatever works best for him… He is a gem of a human being and been a pleasure to work with so I will always be by his side to help accomplish any goals he has. Love the guy.”
Let’s cross our collective fingers and hope some promotion scoops up Ivan quickly as he is always entertaining to watch.
