Three Fighters removed from the UFC Roster
With new names always entering onto the UFC roster it is expected that others are bound to be dropped off. Here are the most recent fighters released from the Zuffa organization.
Most recently Rosi Sexton has been released from her UFC contract. Its reported that she is suffering from a severe neck injury and is considering surgery.
Other recognizable names that have been cut off of the roster are George Sotiropoulos and Alessio Sakara. Sotiropoulos is no real big surprise as he is on a four fight losing streak. Sotiropoulos has fought 11 times in the past six years under the Zuffa banner. So, though it may not be a shocker that he is being cut its hard to imagine him fighting anywhere else.
After having constant problems with making weight, such drastic problems that the fighter was placed in the IR for kidney problems last year, it is no surprise that Alessio Sakara is being cut as well. Sakara is also on a four fight losing streak (including a disqualification to Patrcik Cote), and with losses coming from UFC new comer Nicholas Musoke it is rather clear that the fighter is just not cut out to be in the UFC. Sakara has fought under the Zuffa banner for nearly eighth years and has 15 fights under his belt.
There are sure to be more names dropped from the UFC roster. So, stay tuned to BJPenn.com for all of the latest in MMA and UFC News and all updates.
