Manny Bermudez’s run as a UFC fighter has come to an end.

The 25-year-old fighter announced Friday on his social media that he has been released by the UFC following his first-round submission defeat to Charles Rosa in October, which marked his second loss in a row inside the Octagon.

“Far as I’m concerned this is just an opportunity for growth and improvement,” Bermudez wrote. “No harsh feelings, no worries, I know what I can bring to the table. Looking forward to new beginnings in the near future.”

Bermudez joined the UFC as a 11-0 bantamweight prospect in 2018 and quickly racked up a 3-0 record in the promotion, but missed weight by four pounds before his win over Benito Lopez in February.

After once again experiencing weight cutting issues in August, seeing his bout with Casey Kenney turned into a 140-pound catchweight—which he lost via decision—“The Bermudez Triangle” also came in overweight for his featherweight debut versus Rosa at UFC on ESPN 6.
