UFC Releases Nine More Fighters Including Featherweight, Leonard Garcia

With the signing of several Strikeforce fighters to the UFC roster over the past couple of weeks, the organization was forced to make some roster space for the new signees.

The free space came at the expense of ten UFC veterans who have been released from the UFC.

Leonard Garcia, Antonio Carvalho, Reuben Duran, Pablo Garza, Kurt Holobaugh, Justin Lawrence, Bart Palaszewsk, Sam Sicilia, and Issei Tamuraare are the nine fighters who will be leaving the organization after losing one or more fights in a row under the UFC banner.

All fighter have had their official profiles removed from UFC.com, the official website for UFC. With a number of Strikeforce fighters still being signed and UFC events scheduled for six of the next seven weekends, expect many more releases to come.
