The UFC continues to trim its roster, with Mike Ricci being the latest let go by the promotion.
The Ultimate Fighter 16 runner-up last competed earlier in the month at UFC 165. He took a split-decision loss to the unbeaten Myles Jury, in a fight UFC president Dana White and the fans were none too excited about.
Ricci is 8-4 in MMA with three appearances for the UFC. His only win came against Colin Fletcher.
Other names released by the UFC this week include Yushin Okami, James Head, Papy Abedi and Ben Alloway.
