Leonard Garcia’s UFC Career ‘Not Looking Good’

UFC Featherweight Leonard Garcia

Cats may have nine lives, but UFC president Dana White says Leonard Garcia’s (pictured) UFC career will likely stop at five.

After dropping his fifth consecutive scrap in a lopsided unanimous decision defeat to Cody McKenzie at UFC 159, White didn’t outright fire the featherweight, but insinuated the writing was already plastered all over the cage wall.

“He got beat,” White said following the UFC 159 post-fight press conference. “He even got beat standing up. Cody McKenzie beat him [Saturday], every way you can beat a guy.

“I don’t want to say it, but it’s not looking good.”

That’s ok, because there’s really nothing more to say. After taking a highly controversial split decision win over Nam Phan in his UFC debut, “Bad Boy” has been downright bad.

The UFC typically severs ties with fighters after embarking on three-fight skids, though given Garcia’s gunslinger style, he was granted a reprieve. And then shockingly another one.

However, it appears Saturday signified his Octagon swan song.

Garcia owns a 15-11-1 professional record.
