Nicolas Dalby’s UFC run has come to an end.
The Danish welterweight announced on Wednesday that he has been cut from the UFC following an up-and-down 1-2-1 run within the promotion.
Dalby (14-2-1) entered the UFC as an undefeated 13-0 prospect in May 2015 and promptly picked up a split decision victory over Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos. But that performance would ultimately serve as his lone UFC win.
The 32-year-old followed up by fighting to a majority draw against Darren Till in a back-and-forth bout that won ‘Fight of the Night’ honors at UFC Fight Night 76. Dalby then lost back-to-back contests for the first time in his career, suffering unanimous decision losses to Zak Cummings and Peter Sobotta, the most recent of which came last September at UFC Fight Night 93.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Dalby vowed to fight on and come back “stronger and more dangerous than ever.” That post can be seen below.
I received information that I’ve been cut from the UFC . Is it a bitter pill to swallow? Sure is. Fighting in the UFC is about as big as it gets in MMA. However I am immensely humbled by the love and support my fans, friends, family and girlfriend have showed me! ❤ And now it’s up to me to show the world that nobody puts Dalby in the corner . I’m a lover and a fighter. So now I’ll give my girlfriend a big kiss and go to the gym and train harder than I ever did before. I’ll be back. Stronger and more dangerous than ever! — Yours truly.
