Three UFC fighters have been released from the promotion following a series of losses.

George Sotiropoulos, Alessio Sakara, and Rosi Sexton have been officially cut from the UFC. Each has had multiple fights in the organization. The news was revealed on Twitter by UFC Tonight.

Sotiropoulos was a longtime staple in the UFC’s lightweight division. Despite 11 fights in the promotion though, he was never able to break into the upper echelon of the weight class, and has lost his last four in a row.

Aside from his long UFC career, Sotiropoulos’ release is also notable as he is a former TUF coach, appearing on The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes, an international season that pitted a team of Australian fighters against a team of UK fighters.

Sakara has also had a long career in the UFC, first debuting in 2005. He too has lost his last four as well, including a DQ against Patrick Cote for punches to the back of the head. Sakara will finish his UFC career with six wins in his 11 appearances.

Out of the three, Rosi Sexton’s has spent the least amount of time in the octagon, having been signed as part of the new women’s bantamweight division earlier this year. She has had two fights in the UFC to date, losing both by unanimous decision.

Despite this, the 36-year old fighter is a longtime WMMA veteran, having been actively competing since 2002. Her overall record stands at 13-4.
