According to a report byΒ nine fighters have been given their release by UFC officials.

The fighters are Chad Griggs, Nick Penner, Marcus LeVesseur, John Cofer, Joey Gambino, Jeff Hougland, Jared Papazian, Yasuhiro Urushitani and Henry Martinez.

The reason behind the moves likely has to do with the recent import of several Strikeforce fighters. Strikeforce closed up shop earlier this month, and the UFC has already announced several additions to the active roster from the promotion.

Combined the nine fighters posted a 3-19 record in their UFC careers. Urushitani was brought over as part of the first-ever UFC flyweight tournament last year.
