Rogerio Bontorin released by UFC, plans bantamweight move

Less than two weeks after Rogerio Bontorin was hospitalized and his fight with UFC 275 cancelled, the UFC has released the veteran from contract. Bontorin plans to move to bantamweight after a bad weight cut sent him to the hospital, prompting the UFC call off his fight with Manel Kape in Singapore.

Rogerio Bontorin hospitalized, UFC 275 bout with Manel Kape Nixed

A permanent relocation up to bantamweight might be in the cards for the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Rogerio Bontorin. Ahead of the early weigh-ins for UFC 275 on Friday, Bontorin was set to hit the scales for his flyweight clash against Manel Kape. Before it took place, Eurosport NL reported that Bontorin was hospitalized that morning for what was at the time undisclosed issues. Combate subsequently broke the story that Bontorin was sent to the hospital due to kidney pain, when he was about 130 pounds and trying to cut the remaining four. The UFC has confirmed Bontorin’s withdrawal due to “issues with weight management,” and the lineup shifted to slot the welterweight scrap between Andre Fialho and Jake Matthews up to the main card.

‘Pissed off’ Rogerio Bontorin denies tapping in UFC loss to Brandon Royval, blames ‘fishy’ judges for decision

Rogerio Bontorin is unhappy with the way things went during his UFC Vegas 46 bout with Brandon Royval. The Brazilian flyweight lost a split decision to Royval at the January 15 event, but is adamant that he won the first two rounds. Judge Douglas Crosby was the only to score it that way, with Eric Colon and Chris Lee giving Royval the nod in rounds one and three.

Tap or no tap? The Brandon Royval vs. Rogerio Bontorin fight had fans freaking out

After a nearly unheard of four weeks off for the UFC, there was a lot of excitement going into UFC Vegas 46. Yes, even with ten fights falling apart and the loss of backflipping maniac Michel Pereira. Alas, the card was a relatively lackluster affair with just two finishes across 12 fights. Main event? Fantastic. Prelims? Pass.
