Three Brazilians will have to look for a new contract in 2015.

Fabricio Camoes, Guto Inocente and Wagner Silva, all three riding losing streaks under the UFC banner, were recently released by the promotion. MMA Fighting confirmed the releases.

Camoes (14-9-1) earned a second chance in the UFC after winning back-to-back fights in 2011, but lost all but one since returning to the Octagon. Following a first-round submission win over Tommy Hayden, Morango went 0-3 against Melvin Guillard, Jim Miller and Tony Martin.

After battling consecutive injuries, Inocente (6-4) finally made his UFC debut in July of 2014, but lasted only 3:30 against Derrick Lewis. Four months later, the Brazilian cut down to light heavyweight, but tapped to a rear-naked choke against Anthony Perosh.

Silva (3-2) entered the UFC after competing at TUF: Brazil 3, losing to season winner Warlley Alves in the semifinals. At the TUF Finale show, "Wagnao" lost to fellow semifinalist Ricardo Abreu by submission and also was submitted by Colby Covington six months later.
