The UFC roster has been trimmed by four fighters as the promotion has reportedly released Mara Romero Borella, Iuri Alcantara, Jeff Hughes and Khadis Ibragimov.
MMA Fighting first reported the news. Borella (12-9-0-2NC, 2-5-0 UFC) exits the UFC on a four-fight losing streak and she hasn’t picked up a win in almost two years.
Alcantara (35-10-0-1NC, 10-7-0-1NC UFC), has won just one of his last four fights and the fighter hasn’t competed in over two years.
Hughes (10-4-0-1NC, 0-3-0-1NC UFC) went winless during his UFC tenure, with those losses coming to Maurice Green, Raphael Pessoa and Juan Espino.
Ibragimov (8-4-0, 0-4-0 UFC) went winless during his time in the UFC, dropping bouts to Da Un Jung, Ed Herman, Roman Dolidze and Danilo Marques.
There is no word yet on where the newly released fighters will sign with next, but they are free to go to any organization that wants their services.
