Rolles Gracie Cut by UFC After Debut Loss

Rolles GracieFollowing his dismal performance in a UFC debut loss to Joey Beltran on Saturday at UFC 109, heavyweight Rolles Gracie has become the latest fighter to be dropped by the UFC after losing at the event, joining Mark Coleman, Phillipe Nover, Frank Trigg, and Tim Hague.

Gracie (3-1), a member of the legendary Gracie family who entered the bout undefeated, gassed quickly while displaying lackluster striking before seemingly quitting early in the second round, giving way for Beltran to score a second-round TKO.

Many have called his debut one of the worst in UFC history and his cousin Renzo Gracie called his showing “embarrassing,” though an injury may have contributed to the loss.
