Dane Nicolas Dalby (14-2-1) is no longer on the UFC roster. The Dane announced today via social media, including the Instagram below using a half sad emoji on a MMAViking.com photo, that he was released by the top promotion.
Dalby fought four times in the Octagon with a record of 1 win, 2 losses, and 1 draw. The Rumble Sports fighter entered the Octagon as the Cage Warriors champion and an undefeated 13 win and 0 loss record.
“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.”
The 32-year-old won in a split decision over Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, had a majority draw versus Darren Till, then back-to-back losses to Zak Cummings and Peter Sobotta.
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.

The welterweight sets his eyes on coming back. “Now it’s up to me to show the world that nobody puts Dalby in the corner.”
