The UFC has picked up two new, undefeated prospects, while releasing two others after back to back losses.
Combate reports that Brazilian middleweight Bruno Santos has signed with the UFC. Holding an undefeated 13-0 record, Santos has torn through the competition at smaller shows, including a recent win over Giva Santana in Bellator.
According to numerous media reports, undefeated female bantamweight fighter Alexandra Albu has also been picked up by the UFC. The Russian fighter is reportedly 5-0 in her career, although only one of these bouts can be verified. You can view a video of her most recent fight below, which looks like it has an audience of less than a hundred people. The UFC obviously did their research on her though, so it’s likely that she’s the real deal.
To make room for these two fighters, the UFC has cut two others. Both Mizuto Hirota and Azamat Gashimov are no longer listed in the UFC.com’s official roster. Each of them is 0-2 in the promotion.
