When the UFC deletes a fighter from their roster, it is usually the result of them being released from the biggest MMA organization in the world.

Nine fighters have been deleted from the UFC roster and many of them have already confirmed their release from the UFC.

UFCFIGHTERSiNFO tweeted their most recent update.

Bloody Elbow confirmed that former Strikforce champion Rafael Cavalcante, Daniel Sarafian, Jared Rosholt, Edgar Garcia and Jonavin Webb have been released. Mike Jackson also confirmed with MMA Fighting that he was released after just one fight with the UFC and is looking to step into the boxing ring.

KJ Noons, Joe Riggs and Justin Salas being officially released from the UFC has yet to be confirmed.
