After finishing the final fight on his contract, Alex Oliveira’s UFC career is over for the time being.

Oliveira (22-12-1) was notified by UFC brass that he will not be awarded a new contract after 22 fights with the organization with an 11-10 record with one no-contest record dating back to his octagon debut in March 2015.

Alex Davis, Oliveira’s manager, has confirmed the information.

“It’s a tragic aspect of the sport that a fighter like Alex Oliveira, who constantly lets it all hang out whether he wins or loses,” Davis added, “ends up not getting renewed after a streak of losses.” “However, that is the current state of MMA. Alex appreciates the chances provided by the UFC. He’ll rebuild and put on many more great fights for everyone now that he’s 34 and healthy.

Oliveira, 34, ended his UFC career with four straight losses to renowned opponents Kevin Holland, Niko Price, Randy Brown, and Shavkat Rakhmonov.

Under the UFC banner, the Brazilian “Cowboy” defeated notables like former interim UFC champion Carlos Condit, former Bellator champion Will Brooks, Tim Means, Max Griffin, and others.

Oliveira’s fight with Yancy Medeiros at UFC 218 in December 2017, which he lost by second-round TKO, marked the first time in UFC history that each competitor had two knockdowns.

Oliveira intends to find a new fighting home as soon as possible, according to Davis, with the goal of returning to competition this year.
