Bellator

Several names were removed from Bellator’s roster.

Bellator officials confirmed to MMAFighting.com on Wednesday that 19 fighters were released from the promotion, including former title challengers Eric Prindle and Anthony Leone. The list was initially posted on Sherdog Forum.

The list also includes Frank Baca, Nick Kirk, Travis Marx, Hiroshi Nakamura, Rodrigo Lima, Sergej Grecicho, Jared Downing, Jason Fischer, Tim Welch, Nathan Coy, Anthony Lemon, Trey Houston, Vaughn Anderson, Keith Berry, Jeremy Kimball, Carlos Eduardo and Eric Smith.

David Gomez and Adam Parks also appear on the original list on Sherdog, but Bellator confirmed they are still under contract with the promotion. Additionally, Isaac DeJesus has a short term contract and can fight for Bellator again.

According to Bellator officials, all fighters were released before former Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker replaced Bjorn Rebney as Bellator MMA president.
