As told to FightersOnly magazine by none other than Joey Beltran himself, it appears that the UFC has released “The Mexicutioner” following his first round “kickstand KO” (Props to Stak40 for coining the term) loss to Lavar Johnson at UFC on Fox 2. The loss was Beltran’s fourth in his last five outings.

Fuck that.

Joey B has the potential to be the HW Chris Lytle.
(fight rating wise, I know he'll never be as skilled)
Love watching him scrap win or lose

He should drop down to 205 and take the Bellator lightheavyweight title

Wouldn't be surprised if Pro Elite scoops him up, let him get back on the winning streak against Timmy or AA.

Beltran vs AA would be a nice fight IMO

He needs to drop to 205, asap.

He'll be back in the UFC. Most likely at 205 or not at all

Funny I thought Beltran would always be in the UFC to welcome rookies into the heavyweight division

i thought him dropping 20-25 lbs was to make a drop to LHW. this sucks! he always brings it, which is supposed to keep you around a bit longer if you get in a funk like this

- Matt Brown
- Dan Hardy
- Wanderlei
- Keith Jardine
- Pat Barry
- Joe Stevenson

eh kinda sucks i like the guy, seems like a nice guy and a entertaining figher i was really looking foward to his next fight at 205 to see if that helped. He lost the weight took one last fight at HW and then they all said his next fight was at 205. i think the UFC should have given him one chance against MOR LHW and if he lost cut em.

Beltran vs Vera...why not make that?

I like Beltran. He is a warrior for sure. I think the reasoning behind his cut has to do with the fact of how he got beaten and who beat him. The guy is known for having a granite chin....yet a "tomato can" knocked him effortlessly, quickly and decisively. He needs to get into better shape, maybe drop to 205 where he would be better suited, pick up a few wins in the minors and just maybe the UFC will resign him.
