Following his first round KO (punches) loss to former Strikeforce heavyweight Lavar Johnson during UFC on FOX 2 on Saturday, Jan. 28, Joey “Mexicutioner” Beltran (13-7) announced on Twitter on Wednesday, Feb. 1 that he has been released from his contractual obligations with the UFC.

“To all my fans, friends, family and supporters I will be back better than ever at a new weight class.  Don’t worry about me at all!,” tweeted Beltran.
