Rogerio Bontorin’s run as a UFC fighter has reportedly come to an end. The flyweight has been released by the UFC, per a report from Alex Behunin.
Bontorin’s release comes just weeks after he struggled during a weight cut, forcing his fight against Manel Kape off a UFC pay-per-view card.
Bontorin’s UFC career has concluded with a record of three wins and three losses.
He first joined the promotion in 2018 after an appearance on the TV show “Dana White’s Contender Series.” He started his run strong, defeating Magomed Bibulatov and Raulian Paiva in 2019.
Bontorin struggled later in his UFC run, losing three of his four more recent fights. This includes a 2021 loss against Kai Kara-France and a split decision defeat to Brandon Royval in January.
Bontorin reportedly hopes to compete at bantamweight for his next pro appearance.
