UFC Cuts Cole Escovedo From Bantamweight Ranks

Cole Escovedo is no longer among the ranks of the UFC’s bantamweight division according to his own Twitter account. Escovedo has lost his last three fights and is just 1-5 in his last six.

“Yes if u didn’t get what happened by that vague tweet 😉 I have officially been cut from UFC roster ;-(,” Escovedo posted.

Escovedo fought his way to the UFC after a three-fight losing skid in the WEC sent him to smaller promotions. The former WEC featherweight champion won six straight fights following the release, and still received a shot in the UFC despite a pair of losses late in 2010.

Inside the Octagon, Escovedo was topped by Renan Barao, Takeya Mizugaki and Alex Caceres. He currently holds a record of 17-9, with 10 wins coming by submission.
