Manny Bermudez Announces UFC Release
By FCF Staff
Following several setbacks in and out of the Octagon, Manny Bermudez has announced that he’s been released by the UFC.
Heading into 2019, Bermudez was considered to be one of the UFC’s top bantamweight prospects. But, the 25-year-old missed weight for his first two fights of the year, and Bermudez also came in heavy for a featherweight fight with Charles Rosa last month.
Bermudez lost to Rosa at UFC Boston and prior to that at UFC 241, he incurred his first pro defeat against Casey Kenney.
Recently Bermudez posted the statement below, in which he announced he’s been cut by the UFC.

So unfortunately the UFC has decided to cut me. Far as I’m concerned this this just an opportunity for growth and improvement. No harsh feelings, no worries, I know what I can bring to the table. Looking forward to new beginnings in the near future. Thankful as always for a great team, great friends, and a great family🤘🏽✊🏽 @onechampionship @m1global @pflmma @canalcombate @bellatormma 🤔🧐😏😉🤑 (Also whenever I put something like this up everyone thinks I’m depressed or something, I’m good, just keeping you all in the loop 🤓) #ShootersShoot #StillMoney #MoneyBermudez
