Eric ‘Red’ Schafer Released By UFC
CageJunkies has confirmed that Eric ‘Red’ Schafer a favorite of our very own Pull No Punches Radio, has been released by the UFC today. Schafer made his UFC debut at UFC 62 back in August of 2006. After losing to Michael Bisping and Stephan Bonnar, Schafer was released but made his way back to the promotion in 2008. In his return Schafer strung together victories over Houston Alexander and Antonio Mendes before losing four of his next five fights. His lone victory during the stretch came outside of UFC, defeating Chris Albandia at XFO 41. His latest defeat came to Jorge Rivera at UFC on FX 1: Guillard vs. Miller in January of 2012.
