After storming onto the UFC Heavyweight scene with a vicious KO of Tim Hague in a record 8 seconds, Todd Duffee was looking to continue that vicious streak against Mike Russow, unfortunately, Russow had a chin of steal and provided one of the greatest come from behind wins in UFC history when he knocked Duffee out in the third round of their bout.
Whatever the reason behind it, Todd Duffee has been cut by the UFC and according to his manager Alex Davis, it may have been Duffee's attitude that was the final straw for the UFC:
“Well, I'm not sure exactly what the problem or problems were. I tryed [sic] hard to avoid, but Dana wasn't listening. It unfortunate, but Todd's an asset and he will keep fighting. He's a young kid that gets a lot attention.”
