pablo-garza-4.jpgFeatherweights Pablo Garza and Antonio Carvalho have been removed from the UFC’s current roster of fighters.

Both fighters recently confirmed their releases via Twitter.

The contract terminations come after a busy stretch for the UFC, which has been trimming its roster throughout the year.

Garza’s release follows a recent 1-3 run. The former WEC fighter opened his UFC career with back-to-back stoppages wins over Fredson Paixao and Yves Jabouin, both of which earned fight-night bonuses. Since then, though, he’s suffered losses to Dustin Poirier, Dennis Bermudez and Diego Brandao with a lone win over former title challenger Mark Hominick.

The North Dakota-based Garza (12-4 MMA, 3-3 UFC) said he’s going to concentrate on jiu-jitsu competitions and coaching, but he’s left open the door for a possible UFC return.

So, too, has Carvalho (15-6 MMA, 2-2 UFC), who was cut after a TKO loss to Darren Elkins. Prior to the March setback, the Canadian fighter had posted wins over Daniel Pineda and Rodrigo Damm. In fact, before his loss to Elkins, Carvalho was on a 5-1 run, and the lone defeat came in his UFC debut with Felipe Arantes.

Although the UFC doesn’t officially announce its list of cuts, many fighters confirm them via social media.
