“Now it’s time to sit down and analyze other offers,” Brigadeiro told MMAFighting.com. “We’ll see what he should have done to win (in the UFC) and move on. He has no date to fight again yet.”
“I think that, despite not winning (in the UFC), he did what we expected to do as far as being aggressive, doing great fights,” he said. “When you get to a promotion as big as the UFC, you’re under pressure to deliver and sometimes you can’t be more cautious, so you don’t win.
“Jose Maria is a great athlete, he pleases the crowd and has done great during training at RFT. I can’t say what went wrong, actually. Maybe it wasn’t supposed to happen right now.”
Jose Maria Tome is 33–5 (2) in his MMA history and lost his last two fights by TKO to be cut from the UFC. Good luck in your future endeavors.
