The UFC's current roster downsizing continues with the latest victims being light-heavyweights Mike Ciesnolevicz and Tim Boetsch, who were both coming off recent losses inside the octagon. News of the fighter cuts comes courtesy of MMAWeekly.com.
The report also states that Boetsch is looking to land with Strikeforce and Ciesnolevicz would like to make his way back to the UFC.
Tim Boetsch was defeated by Jason Brilz at UFC 96 in his last fight inside the octagon. He was rather inconsistent in his time with the UFC finishing up with an even 2-2 record with the promotion. Boetsch burst onto the scene as a late replacement for Tomasz Drwal at UFC 81 against David Heath and scored an impressive win. In his other UFC appearances, Boetsch would go on to lose against Matt Hamill at UFN 13 before rebounding with a win over Mike Patt at UFC 88 last September.
Mike Ciesnolevicz is fresh off a loss against Tomasz Drwal at last weekend's TUF 9 finale and finished 1-1 in two fights with the UFC. Ciesnolevicz may have soured the UFC's opinion on him after he failed to make weight for his fight against Drwal. Prior to the loss, Ciesnolevicz made a successful UFC debut by defeating Neil Grove at UFC 95 back in February.
