As many had predicted when their profiles were removed from UFC.com, George Sotiropoulos, Rosie Sexton and Alessio Sakara have all been released from their UFC contracts. Their releases were confirmed via UFC Tonight.
Sotiropoulos had positioned himself as a lightweight contender following a stint on The Ultimate Fighter 6, but found his way out of the promotion after posting a four-fight losing streak. His most recent defeat came in October to KJ Noons by unanimous decision.
Sexton lost by unanimous decision in both of her UFC appearances, most recently to Jessica Andrade in October.
Sakara has been with the UFC since 2005, but has also been let go after losing four straight.
