Roldan Sangcha-an was included in the list of fighters released by the UFC.

The UFC did some house clearing over the weekend. Unfortunately for Filipino fight fans, flyweight Roldan Sangcha-an was amongst the casualties.

Sangcha-an was one of more than 30 fighters whom the promotion released, according to a report by Bloody Elbow (via UFCFIGHTERSiNFO). You’ll also notice that Sangcha-an is no longer included in the UFC flyweight roster on the promotion’s official website.

The 26-year-old last fought in UFC’s first trip to Manila in May 2015, yielding to Filipino-American Jon Delos Reyes by submission in a “Fight of the Night” performance.

Additionally, Delos Reyes also shared the same fate as Roldan, as he’s likewise been cut from the UFC.

Notable fighters who were released by the promotion are Rick Story, Takeya Mizugaki, Lorenz Larkin, Seo Hee Ham, and former UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar.
