It is definitely not good for those fighters who recently had several consecutive losses in the UFC. It hasn’t been an entire month since the last set of releases, and now the company has already released Anderson dos Santos and three more fighters.
According to the latest report by MMA Fighting, UFC released Anderson dos Santos (21-9), Roosevelt Roberts (10-3-1), Drako Rodrigues (7-3), and Jamey Simmons (7-4).
The most shocking name among these four is Roosevelt Roberts. The submission specialist came to the UFC from Dana White’s contender series back in 2015. Roberts had an impressive record of 4-1 in his first five fights. However, his last few fights didn’t turn out really well where he submitted by Jam Miller and got knocked out by Ignacio Bahamondes in one of the best finishes.
On the other hand, Rodriguez and Simmon have good MMA but they didn’t even have a single victory in the UFC. As a result, the promotion decided to hand them their walking papers and bid them farewell.
The company recently released fighters like Yancy Medeiros and Ryan Benoit, and now chopped off four more recognizable names.
