Four fighters fave been released from their contractual obligations to the UFC following mutual losses in the month of December.
Kevin Burns, Edgar Garcia, Shane Nelson and Darrill Schoonover have all been let go by the promotion according to a recent report from our friends at MMASurvival.com.
Burns was on a three fight losing skid inside of the Octagon with consecutive losses at the hands of Anthony Johnson, Chris Lytle and T.J. Grant after earning a submission victory over BJJ black belt Roan Carneiro and an eye poke TKO over Johnson in his first two bouts with the UFC.
Nelson is coming off of a pair of unanimous decision defeats at the hands of Aaron Riley and Matt Wiman after previously toppling Riley and George Roop in the UFC after his stint on the eighth season of The Ultimate Fighter.
The heavy handed Garcia entered the UFC undefeated and is leaving with two losses on his record at the hands of Brad Blackburn and DaMarques Johnson during action packed bouts.
Schoonover was released following his recent TUF 10 Finale TKO loss to James McSweeney, and while he had suffered an unofficial knockout defeat at the oversized hands of Marcus Jones, Darrill entered the house with an unblemished record of 10-0.
