by Damon Martin | source:

It was a tough run for Mario Miranda during his UFC career, but following back-to-back losses the Brazilian has been released from the promotion.

Miranda’s manager Ed Soares confirmed the news to MMAWeekly Radio on Wednesday.

“He’s bummed, but he kind of expected it. He got cut unfortunately,” Soares revealed.

“His last 4 fights he’s had 3 losses in the UFC, and I think he just needs to go back to the drawing board and get some wins."

“Our goal is try to get him to fight three more times by the end of the year, and put three more wins together and try to get him back in there.”

Following a tough three round split decision loss at UFC Fight Night 24, former “Ultimate Fighter” finalist Kris McCray has been released from the promotion.

The season 11 cast member had dropped his 3 bouts in the Octagon since leaving the show, including the finale loss to eventual champion Court McGee. McCray dropped to 170lbs after the fight with McGee, but came up short in both of his fights there..

“After a fight like that it kind of sucks, but what can you do…never let it get in the hands of the judges. It was a great fight and not to take anything away from Hathaway, but I wish I would have got that last fight,” McCray told

“I know I can compete at that level, I had a really good fight and a tough guy at that level. So just get back, keep fighting, and we’ll see 3, 4, 5 or 6 fights, who knows, definitely want to get back on the bike.”

Slow down dude that's Kevin McAllister you are talking to. A guy so legit he isn't registered as a fighter on (a site whose registration is required for ALL unified rules commissioned states). So therefore he must be a ninja like on the level of Rafiel Torre and stuff!

no you would not internet tough guy. Mcray would beat the shit out of you. You think him having a decision with Hathaway means you could survive 3 rounds with him. This shows how stupid some mma fans are. He would toss you around like a small child and beat the shit out of you.Wisen Up
