Yair Rodriguez is no longer with the UFC. UFC President Dana White released him on Friday after, apparently, becoming frustrated with his lack of willingness to accept fights, time off and a tweet White seemed to take exception to. Rodriguez hadn’t fought since UFC 211 when he lost to Frankie Edgar, his only loss inside the organization. They wanted the Mexican featherweight to face Zabit Magomedsharipov at UFC 227, but Rodriguez, for whatever reason, didn’t appear interested.
