Video: 'Shocked' Will Chope learned of UFC release on Twitter, will fight on May 25 in Taiwan

Former UFC featherweight Will Chope was shocked to learn he was released from the promotion, considering his assault conviction was five years old. In addition, "The Kill" informed UFC on his application that he had a misdemeanor charge on his record and is puzzled as to why action was taken now, after this report found its way online. Chope will move forward with a fight for ProFC on May 25, 2014 in Taiwan, and hopes MMA fans will forgive him ... something his ex-wife did long ago.
