Thomas Almeida, Sarah Alpar & Two Others No Longer with UFC


According to the latest reports, Thomas Almeida, Mike Rodriguez, Sarah Alpar, and Antonio Arroyo are no longer with the roster of the UFC.

Combate was the first one to report the release of Arroyo and Almeida, and MMA Fighting also confirmed this news with multiple people of knowledge.

Thomas Almeida (22-5) was one of the most promising fighters when he signed with the UFC back in 2014. He managed to get four straight wins inside the octagon after his debut. He faced his first loss against Cody Garbrandt, and then after winning another fight, he faced four back-to-back defeats. 

On the other hand, Antonio Arroyo failed to get a single win at the UFC. He was pretty impressive in Dana White’s contender series but lost all three matches after signing with the promotion. 

Mike Rodriguez only won two out of his eight UFC bouts, and now he is leaving the company after three straight losses. Sarah Alpar was the former LFA Bantamweight champion when she joined UFC. However, she lost against Jessica Rose Clark and Erin Blanchfield after her UFC debut.
