Seven Fighters Removed From The Official UFC Roster

Postby 770 » May 15. 2018, 20:46

It would appear that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has let go of more than a few fighters over the past 30 days. Now fight fans can see precisely which mixed martial artists will no longer be competing under the UFC roster.
The UFC is home to some of the sport’s most talented and toughest fighters. As the world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion, this perhaps comes as no surprise.
Still, sometimes those that make it onto the roster of the UFC eventually find their way under different banners. This time around, the UFC has removed seven fighters from their ranks.
As reported by BloodyElbow, with that past 30 days, seven fighters have been removed from the UFC roster. Among them, MMA legend Vitor Belfort retired from the sport after suffering a knockout loss to Lyoto Machida. The promotion decided to not renew women’s bantamweight Leslie Smith’s contract.
Check out the full list of fighters to have been removed from the roster within the past 30 days in the list below:
Vitor Belfort
Yair Rodriguez
Bec Rawlings
Leslie Smith
Frankie Perez
Anthony Hamilton
Bojan Velickovic

Too bad about Yair, he looked like a promising, skillful fighter. Off to Bellator I'm sure.

Bojan Velickovic had talent.  Run into some tough dudes.  2 of his 3 losses were also via SD.
