Jared Rosholt's UFC run has come to an end.

Rosholt, nicknamed "The Big Show," was recently released by the organization, a UFC official confirmed with MMAFighting.com following some online speculation. The decision comes after the 14-3 heavyweight fighter lost a unanimous decision to Roy Nelson in February.

The 29-year-old Rosholt had a 6-2 record inside the Octagon, however, he only finished one opponent during that stretch. He was often accused of not producing the most fan-friendly fights.

A former three-time Division I NCAA wrestler at Oklahoma State University, Rosholt had been a member of the UFC since Nov. 2013.
