The Brazilian featherweight on Thursday announced via Instagram that he’s been released by the industry-leader after five fights.
”Hey guys, unfortunately I’m no longer part of UFC anymore,” he wrote. “But that’s it, life goes on!”
In his octagon debut, Sheymon Moraes had the unenviable task of facing Zabit Magomedsharipov and suffered a third-round submission loss. But he then rebounded with a pair of wins over Matt Sayles and Julio Arce.
Moraes didn’t give any details as far as his next career move.
