One day after Eddie Gordon revealed that he had been released by the UFC, five other fighters took to social media to announce that they are no longer under contract with the Las Vegas-based promotion.

“The Ultimate Fighter 14” cast member Marcus Brimage was likely the most well-known roster casualty. Roger Narvaez, Christos Giagos, Matt Van Buren and Chris Clements also received pink slips amid speculation that more cuts could be forthcoming. The UFC does not generally announce or confirm when it releases a fighter.

Brimage began his Octagon tenure with three consecutive triumphs but lost four of his final five bouts within the Las Vegas-based promotion. Most recently, he suffered a first-round knockout loss to Jimmie Rivera at UFC Fight Night “Bisping vs. Leites” on July 18. He was also the first person to face Conor McGregor in the UFC, falling to the “Notorious” one via first-round TKO 67 seconds into their encounter in April 2013.

Giagos (1-2), Narvaez (1-2), Van Buren (0-2) and Clements (2-2, 1 NC) combined for a 4-8 record in UFC competition.

Sorry everyone but I will be back!!! #all #good #noworries
