The Ultimate Fighting Championship officially has released light heavyweight Houston Alexander, his manager, Monte Cox, today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Alexander, 37, suffered his fourth UFC loss in six appearances when Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson out-pointed him at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale in December.

The fight drew tremendous criticism from fans due to its lack of action, but no one was more vocal in disapproval than UFC president Dana White, who promised to cut Alexander afterward.

It didn't take long, though, for the Nebraskan to find another home.

On Jan. 16, Alexander (9-5), who went 2-4 in the UFC, headlines 5150 Fight League's "The New Year's Revolution" at the SpiritBank Event Center in Bixby near Tulsa, Okla., against Total Combat and King of the Cage veteran Joey Beltran (9-3).
