Jake Rosholt Looking For Work
Earlier today, highly decorated wrestler Jake Rosholt (6-2, 1-2 UFC) announced via his twitter account that he's been dropped from the UFC roster.
It's fairly easy to understand why. Rosholt was, after all, last seen on Spike TV hastily tapping to a triangle choke from Kendall Grove and blowing a fight he was clearly winning in the process. When I say hastily, I mean he tapped essentially at the exact instant the triangle choke was locked in. Then again, maybe I'm just bitter because I had picked Jake to win.
In fairness, it was only Rosholt's second career loss, but the UFC has made it clear in the past that the octagon is not the place to sort out or assemble your game. Hopefully Jake can score a few victories in smaller shows and return to the top of the mountain sometime soon.
