The UFC released one of the heavyweight division’s most courageous competitors after suffering the first knockout loss of his career, as Joey Beltran has revealed he is now officially a free agent despite his consistency in bringing an all-out, fan-friendly style into the Octagon. Beltran was stopped with strikes by Lavar Johnson last weekend at UFC on FOX 2, a defeat dropping his record to 1-4 in his last five outings.

Beltran announced his status on Twitter where he also hinted at dropping down to 205 pounds.

“The Mexicutioner” started out at 2-0 in the UFC including wins over Tim Hague and Rolles Gracie before hitting a brick wall starting with Matt Mitrione at UFC 119. The 30-year old Beltran holds an overall mark of 13-7 with eleven strike-based stoppages. In addition to Gracie/Hague, Beltran has also found past success in the ring against Wes Combs, Aaron Rosa, and Houston Alexander.
