UFC Releases Nine Fighters From The Promotion This Week


It appears that UFC is cleaning house again, as the promotion is rumored to be releasing several fighters this week.

Several of the UFC fighter profiles were deleted on Monday, which is usually an indication that the fighter has been, or is going to be released from the company.

Among those included were number 13 ranked Flyweight contender Tim Elliot and UFC Women’s Bantamweight pioneer Shayna Baszler.

Also removed from the UFC roster page were Tateki Matsuda, Alex Torres, Dylan Andrews, Shane Howell, Rocky Lee, Vik Grujic and Alptekin Ozkilic.

It’s worth noting that until we receive confirmation, this should be taken strictly as a rumor.
