Fifteen-time Octagon veteran Yancy Medeiros is no longer on the Ultimate Fighting Championship roster.

MMAFighting.com reported on Tuesday that Medeiros and Justin Jaynes have been released by the Las Vegas-based promotion. It is unclear if Medeiros and Jaynes were cut with existing fights on their deals or if their contracts were simply not renewed.

Medeiros has been with the UFC since 2013, compiling a 6-8 record with one no contest over the course of his tenure. He earned notable wins over the likes of Alex Oliveira, Erick Silva and John Makdessi. Medeiros exits the organization on a four-bout skid, including a decision loss to Damir Hadzovic in his most recent outing at UFC Fight Night 190 on June 26. The Strikeforce veteran earned five performance bonuses during his time with the UFC.

Jaynes exits the UFC on a four-bout skid after scoring a 41-second technical knockout win over Frank Camacho in his debut in June 2020. In his last outing, Jaynes dropped a split decision to Charles Rosa at UFC Fight Night 190, where he bet his entire fight purse on himself.
