Roger Gracie is no longer in the UFC.
The multiple-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion fulfilled his contract with the organization, and he has not been offered an extension, according to a report from Globo.com.
Numerous messages to Gracie’s representatives, asking for comment on the matter were not answered at the time of this publication.
Gracie’s expired contract was initially signed when he was fighting in the Strikeforce promotion. As reported by GRACIEMAG.com, Gracie was one of several fighters whose contracts transitioned to the UFC once Zuffa, the company that owned both MMA leagues, shut down Strikeforce operations.
According to the report, Gracie fulfilled his contract obligations with the loss to Tim Kennedy at UFC 162. The organization opted not to offer Gracie a new contract, and the fighter is now a free agent able to sign with another organization.
