UFC Parts Way With Four Fighters, Including ‘Contender Series’ Standout Roosevelt Roberts

A four-pack of fighters is no longer part of the UFC roster, per a report from Guilherme Cruz and Damon Martin of MMA Fighting.

Anderson dos Santos, Drako Rodriguez, Jamey Simmons and Roosevelt Roberts are reportedly not under contract with the UFC at this moment.

All four fighters depart the roster after recent appearances in the octagon.

Roberts has gone winless in his past three bouts. He was knocked out late in his last bout, getting stopped by Ignacio Bahamondes last month.

Roberts was signed to the UFC roster in 2018 after a win on TV show “Dana White’s Contender Series.” The then-undefeated lightweight wraps up his promotional run with four wins and three losses.

Dos Santos also took a loss last month, getting finished by Miles Johns at UFC 265. The fight was his third loss through four UFC appearances.

Rodriguez had the shortest UFC stint of all fighters in the recent departure. The 25-year-old signed with the promotion last year off a “Dana White’s Contender Series” win, and is leaving after suffering two losses this year.

Simmons is off the UFC roster after being finished two consecutive times. He was submitted last month in a fight against Johnny Munoz.
