UFC Parts Ways With Veteran Alex Oliveira

Alex Oliveira’s UFC run has come to an end.

The 22-fight UFC vet reportedly parted ways with the promotion earlier this month, per a report from Damon Martin of MMA Fighting.

Oliveira’s UFC run has wrapped up after suffering four consecutive losses from 2020 to 2022.

Oliveira’s latest contract with the promotion reportedly came to an end with his last fight and a new contract was not met afterward. His last appearance was a second-round stoppage loss against Kevin Holland at UFC 272 last month.

Oliveira, 34, first joined the UFC roster in 2015 with a record of 11 wins through 15 pro bouts. He initially strung together seven wins through his first 10 appearances with the promotion.

He went on a three-fight skid between 2018 and 2019 but was able to rebound in 2020 with two wins. Struggles in more recent years have been him on a four-fight skid, marking the longest streak of losses during his pro career.
