UFC heavyweight prospect Todd Duffee has been released by the UFC according to MMA Junkie:

A little more than one year after Duffee burst onto the UFC scene with a seven-second knockout of Tim Hague, the 24-year-old is no longer employed by the sport's largest mixed martial arts promotion.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned of the UFC's decision from multiple sources with knowledge of the move, and Duffee's manager, Alex Davis, confirmed the report.

Davis declined to comment further on the matter or speculate as to the reason behind the UFC's decision.

Duffee wasn't immediately available for comment when contacted by MMAjunkie.com.

This certainly is interesting. This is such a strange occurrence that there has to be more than meets the eye here. Usually things of that sort come out in time, so we'll wait and see what happens. But for now, another promotion has the chance to sign a promising heavyweight.
