Former Oklahoma State wrestler Jared Rosholt's time in the UFC ended Wednesday as the promotion released him, reports

Rosholt, 29, posted a 6-2 record inside the octagon. He lost by unanimous decision to Roy Nelson at UFC Fight Night "Hendricks vs. Thompson" in February. The loss snapped a three-fight win streak for "The Big Show," who had beaten Stefan Struve, Timothy Johnson and Josh Copeland leading up to the fight.

Rosholt, a three-time NCAA All-American and 2010 NCAA national runner-up for the Cowboys, only finish in the UFC was a third-round TKO (punches) against Josh Copeland at UFC 185 in March 2015. He was often criticized for his fighting style and slow pace to fights. His only other loss in the UFC was by first round knockout to Oleksiy Oliynyk at UFC Fight Night: "Edgar vs. Swanson" in November 2014.

The 29-year-old is 14-3 during his five-year MMA pro career.
