Antonio Carvalho

By FCF Staff

Following his first round, stoppage loss to Darren Elkins at UFC 158 in March, Antonio Carvalho has announced he’s been cut by the promotion.

The 33 year-old featherweight relayed via Twitter:

I have been cut by the UFC. Too many FW’s on roster & need to cut back. Business is that way. Only love for the UFC. Hopefully be back. Thx!

Carvalho (15-6) went 2-2 during his time with the UFC. After dropping a unanimous decision to Felip Arantes at UFC 142, the Canadian went on to score a KO win over Daniel Pineda and a split decision win over Rodrigo Damn.

The BJJ black belt, who has also fought for Shooto multiple times, made his way to the UFC riding a three fight win streak.
