Sexton, Sakara, Sotiropoulos off roster

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Rosie Sexton, Alessio Sakara, and George Sotiropoulos were removed from the UFC.com list of active fighters, which is generally a sign that they have been released from their contracts.

Sexton is 0-2 in the UFC, and faces neck surgery.

George Sotiropoulos is 0-4 his last four fights.

Alessio Sakarais likewise is 0-4 his last four.

As new talent is signed, some of the older fighters are by necessity released, but it is not anyone’s favorite part of the sport, and for particular fans of a fighter, it is really bad news.
