Ellenor
, Arbi
Mezhidov
, Frans
Mlambo

Sherdog.com confirmed the news with a promotion official on Monday
following an initial report from
MMAjunkie.com
. It is unclear whether the aformentioned fighters
were released or simply did not have their contracts renewed.

Girtz has been with Bellator since 2012, compiling an 8-8 mark over
the course of his promotional tenure. During that time, he went 1-2
in an entertaining trilogy against Derek
Campos

Huerta, meanwhile, rose to fame in the UFC and even appeared on the
cover of Sports Illustrated for his fight with Leonard
Garcia
in April 2007. “El Matador” went 1-2 during a brief
stint with Bellator in 2010 and returned in 2018, losing four
consecutive fights against the likes of Benson
Henderson
, Patricky
Freire
, Sidney
Outlaw
and Christopher
Gonzalez
