Lansberg expressed his gratitude to his followers on Instagram, stating: “Thank you so much for all the love and support.”

“This has been a hell of a ride and to start fighting is the best thing I’ve ever done. It has given me so, so much. But now it’s time to move on. I’m done,” he added.

After making her debut in the UFC in 2016, the fighter known as the “Elbow Queen” has gone back and forth between victories and defeats. The former top-15 bantamweight fighter lost her next four fights, including losses to Sara McMann, Pannie Kianzad, and Karol Rosa. Despite winning back-to-back fights against Tonya Evinger and Macy Chiasson, she fell out of the top-15. She departs the sport having finished her professional career with an overall record of 10-8.

After suffering defeats in the most recent event, UFC Vegas 69, two other fighters were cut from the organization’s roster.

After suffering a defeat at the hands of Marcin Prachnio through a unanimous decision, William Knight’s record as a light heavyweight fighter in the UFC dropped to 3-4. The ‘Knightmare’ was subjected to a great deal of criticism for his odd performance, to which he responded by claiming that he ‘froze up’ when competing against Prachnio in an Instagram video that has since been deleted.

The former participant in the Contender Series went into his UFC career with a record of 1-1 but went on to achieve victories over Fabio Cherant and Alonzo Menifield. After winning his previous two bouts in a row, Knight’s winning streak ended when he was defeated by Maxim Grishin, Devin Clark, and now Prachnio.

After losing by unanimous decision to Zac Pauga for the fourth time in a row, UFC middleweight-turned-light heavyweight Jordan Wright was also removed. The ‘Hollywood Hills Ninja’ finished with an overall record of 2-5 throughout his time spent competing for the promotion.

Officials from the UFC have confirmed that both Knight and Wright have been removed from the roster as a result of their individual contracts coming to an end.
