Eric 'Red' Schafer

Eric Schafer is a middleweight fighter who formerly competed in the light-heavyweight division of the UFC. He was cut from the promotion's roster after back-to-back losses to Ryan Bader and Jason Brilz.

Schafer most recently made his return to MMA and his middleweight debut in the XFO promotion against fellow veteran Chris Albandia. He defeated Albandia via a swift first round triangle choke submission.

Only a short time later, Schafer was offered to return to the UFC and he accepted, making his return at middleweight against Aaron Simpson. Simpson dominated Schafer standing en route to a unanimous decision victory.

Schafer next signed to face veteran Jorge Rivera in a loser-leaves-town bout. It could also be considered a "loser-retires" bout. Rivera defeated Schafer via second round TKO and still retired afterwards, at least with a victory. Schafer was more than likely cut from the UFC for the third time after the second-straight loss.
