UFC releases veteran heavyweight Jared Rosholt

March 30, 2016 1:22 pm by Evan Bell

News broke Wednesday afternoon that the UFC had released veteran heavyweight Jared Rosholt following his ‘UFC Fight Night: Hendricks vs. Thompson’ loss to Roy Nelson back in February.

Rosholt had been with the UFC since 2013 where he defeated Walt Harris via unanimous decision in the finale of the ‘TUF: Rousey vs. Tate’ finale. Rosholt compiled a record of 6-2 during his time with the UFC, with his loss to Nelson snapping a three fight win streak.

Despite having an impressive record of 6-2, Rosholt only finished one opponent in his 6 wins with the promotion, leading many to criticize him for his style.

MMAFighting confirmed Rosholt’s release with the UFC.
