Leonard Garcia, Bart Palaszewski, Five Others Released By UFC

A total of seven fighters have been released by the UFC, according to a report by BloodyElbow.com and subsequent follow-ups via Twitter.

Leonard Garcia, Bart Palaszewski, Issei Tamura, Justin Lawrence, Reuben Duran, Sam Sicilia and Kurt Holobaugh have all been given their releases.

Garcia and Palaszewski each confirmed the news on social media.

These are just the latest in a growing list of fighters sent backing. More releases are expected, as well, but there is always the possibility that a couple of regional circuit wins allows some of the aforementioned to return.
