Rolles Gracie shown the door following UFC 109 defeat

You can add Rolles Gracie‘s name to the handful of fighters that have been released from the UFC following UFC 109, as The Wrestling Observer recently confirmed the heavyweight’s dismissal from the promotion.

Gracie joins Mark Coleman, Frank Trigg, Phillipe Nover, and Tim Hague, who were all recently let go from the UFC following defeats in the Octagon.

Gracie looked incredibly winded in the second round of his UFC debut with Joey “The Mexicutioner” Beltran before falling victim to a TKO through a series of punches which effectively spelled his departure from the organization.

The second degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt leaves the UFC with an overall career record of 3-1, with all three of his victories coming by way of submission.
