UFC Cuts Middleweight Jake Rosholt Following UFC 106 Loss

Jake RosholtMiddleweight Jake Rosholt (6-2, 1-2 UFC) has been cut by the UFC after suffering a first-round submission loss to Kendall Grove at UFC 106 earlier this month, Rosholt announced Monday on Twitter.

A four-time All-American and three-time Division I champion wrestler at Oklahoma State, Rosholt won four-straight since beginning his MMA career in mid-2008, then pushed his record to 5-0 with a second-round knockout of Nissen Osterneck in his WEC debut last November. Rosholt was swiftly submitted by Dan Miller in his UFC debut earlier this year, and despite rebounding with a submission of veteran Chris Leben in August, he was released after dropping to 1-2 inside the Octagon with his loss to Grove.

Rosholt should find another employer soon enough, with Strikeforce likely topping the list of promotions vying for his services to further bolster its middleweight division.
