After failing to have his hand raised in two outings, Luis Ramos has seen his UFC tenure cut short. The 31-year-old Brazilian came into the promotion as a highly touted welterweight, but Ramos (19-8) was never able to captured his UFC moment.
“Beicao” made his UFC debut in his home country of Brazil at UFC 134 in August, where he met fellow prospect Erick Silva as a late replacement for Mike Swick. The bout served as the start of Silva’s impressive UFC run, seeing him blitz Ramos, knocking out his countryman in a mere 40 seconds.
It would be nearly 10 months before “Beicao” took the cage once again, losing via TKO to Matt Brown at UFC on FX 4 two weeks ago. Brown mashed the fading Brazilian with a myriad of strikes from the clinch late in the second round, leaving referee Gasper Oliver no choice but to call the bout at 4:20.
Ramos will likely continue his career in Brazil in an attempt to get back to the big show, but given the quality of his UFC performances, it may be unlikely that the 31-year-old gets a second chance.
