Todd Duffee cut by the UFC

By Chris Parry | http://communities.canada.com

Heavyweight man mountain Todd "Duffman" Duffee has been cut by the UFC after refusing a fight against John Madsen at UFC 121.

Duffee, who was (erroneously) dubbed the owner of the fastest knockout in UFC history when he destroyed Alberta's Tim Hague in seven seconds in August last year, lost by a shock KO to Mike Russow in his last outing after gassing quickly.

Duffee has claimed his knee was bothering him before that fight, and apparently asked to miss the MAdsen fight so he could continue rehabbing the joint.

Take it away, MMAJunkie:

"Emotionally, I'm hurt," Duffee said. "I'm hurt more than anything because I don't know why. As a man, you just want to hear why so you can understand."

"I had a knee injury going into the Russow fight. I'm not making any excuses because I lost that fight, and all props to Mike, but I definitely feel like it affected my gameplan and my mentality going into the fight. I didn't want that to happen again with Madsen. I wanted to be able to go out there and fight to my full potential instead of just boxing, basically. I asked for more time, and as far as I knew, they had granted it to me."

Duffee no doubt didn't help his cause when he Tweeted in late August, "looking for weekend job in denver tired of being completely broke [any] suggestions?"

After the Hague KO, Duffee was being touted as a monster and potential eventual replacement for Brock Lesnar as the division's most feared fighter. How quickly a UFC fighter can fall.

Here's the first five minutes of the next season of Ultimate Fighter, where Josh Koscheck faces off against Georges St Pierre as coaches, leading into the finale where Koscheck will be beaten resoundingly in the cage.
