Joey Beltran Released From The UFC’s Active Roster

Joey Beltran has been given his release from the UFC for the second time, according to the fighter himself.

Beltran posted on Twitter that he was cut following a recent loss to Fabio Maldonado. He is 14-9 with one no-contest in his MMA career.

“Thank you to UFC, Dana White, Lorenzo Feritta and Joe Silva for the opportunities you have given me,” Beltran wrote. “Time for a new chapter in my fight life.”

The 31-year-old moved down from heavyweight after his first release from the UFC. Beltran defeated Anton Talamantes, but went 0-2 with the one no-contest after that bout.

Beltran also lost four of his five UFC bouts between 2010-12, with the lone win coming over Aaron Rosa. He was defeated by the likes of Stipe Miocic, Pat Barry and Matt Mitrione.
