Heavyweight up-and-comer Todd Duffee was reportedly cut by the UFC yesterday, and though first-hand accounts of the assault are unclear, it's said the wound was mostly superficial. Duffee made a big splash in his UFC debut in August, 2009, earning a seven-second KO over Tim Hague. But injuries kept him out of the Octagon until May of this year, when, at UFC 114: "Rampage vs. Evans", the towering goliath brutally pounded on Mike Russow for two and half rounds and then was abruptly knocked out himself. "Of course it comes as a shock," said Duffee's manager, Alex Davis. "I mean, we thought everything was cool, but when Todd was waiting in the cafeteria lunch line, Dana [White] came out of no where and shanked him a bunch of pencils taped together. And the guards did nothing!" What's next for the man with one of the fastest KOs in UFC history? According to Davis, once Duffee gets out of the infirmary he'll likely get a gig in the library. "You know, delivering books or something."
