UFC Cuts Three Fighters, Including George Sotiropoulos

UFC Cuts Three Fighters, Including George Sotiropoulos

The UFC has released three fighters, including one who was close to a title shot only a few years ago.

According to confirmation from FOX Sports, George Sotiropoulos, Alessio Sakara and Rosi Sexton have all been let go following recent losses.

Sotiropoulos (14-6) has lost his last four, including two via finish. Prior to that, though, he went on a a eight-fight win streak that included victories in his first seven UFC bouts.

Sakara (15-11) posted a 6-8 UFC record over the last eight years, but dropped his last four. Sexton (13-4) lost both of her Octagon bouts after joining the promotion.

    Sadly I think Sarah Kaufmann and Liz Carmouce are next on the list, which would suck

  • fanoftna33 says:

    I think Kaufmann would need to lose anoth fight and Liz has at least two more losses before they would cut her, Sarah came in off a very lucky decision win over Lesile Smith and lost again, they might not want to keep her at 0-2 and only 1 -4. Still I think Sarah is someone I personally like to watch fight and I hope she gets a win to stay for a while as she is super tough.

  • raker says:

    Carmouche has become quite popular has put up some decent showings, including a near sub of Rousey, and is still a strong contender. I can’t see her going anywhere soon.

    It doesn’t surprise me that the ufc waited until after the Aussie event to cut Sotiropoulous. Probably saved having to answer a bunch of questions while there and kept the local focus on the fighters.
