UFC Joey Beltran

On Wednesday afternoon, heavyweight Joey Beltran (Pictured) revealed he had been released by the UFC. Although “The Mexicutioner” was visibly distraught following Saturday’s lights out loss to Lavar Johnson, the 30-year-old understands that MMA is all bout stockpiling Ws.

“I am truly grateful for all the opportunities that I have received from the UFC/Zuffa. I am not sad or hurt by their decision, as I know that winning is the name of the game,” Beltran told Fighters Only.

“Posting a 1-4 record my last 5 fights is unacceptable, regardless of how entertaining the fights were. So this is the next chapter of my career, and one that I am excited for. You will definitely see my ugly face again, so fans don’t worry and haters keep on hating.”

Beltran owns a 13-7 professional record, with 11 of his wins coming via some form of knockout. However, he only won half of his six big leagues fights.
