According to Joey Beltran’s twitter he has been released by the UFC. This was the second time Beltran has been released by the UFC. Beltran made his UFC debut at UFC 109 when he finished Rolles Gracie in the second round. After a 3-4 run in the UFC, and losing to Lavar Johnson at UFC On FOX in January of last year, Beltran was released. After picking up a win outside of the octagon, Beltran was brought back to fight James Te Huna. Beltran lost the bout to Te Huna, and although he won his next fight against Igor Pokrajac, it was later overturned to a no contest when he tested positive for nandrolone. Beltran last lost a split decision to Fabio Maldonado at UFC Fight Night 29: Maia Vs Shields.
