Nicco Montano is no longer a UFC fighter. The former women’s flyweight champion was released by the organization following this past weekend’s weight miss for her bantamweight bout at UFC on ESPN 28. MMA Junkie confirmed the news Tuesday night following a report by MMA Fighting . Montano (4-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) came in seven pounds over the 136-pound limit for her fight against Wu Yanan. The massive weight miss led to the cancelation of the fight and criticism from UFC president Dana White earlier Tuesday. “This might not be the sport for her,” White said
