In May, Ian Garry squared off against Daniel Rodriguez at UFC Charlotte, with the seasoned welterweight experiencing a first-round knockout loss due to a head kick.

Before that contest, ‘D-Rod’ had faced a third-round submission defeat at the hands of Neil Magny in November 2022, putting an end to his four-fight winning streak. However, this bout would ultimately mark the beginning of the end of Rodriguez’s career in the UFC.

According to a recent update from the UFC Roster Tracker, Rodriguez’s UFC contract has been terminated. This action appears to be a direct result of his recent failed drug test. The 36-year-old American fighter was subjected to a six-month suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) for testing positive for ostarine during an out-of-competition drug screening leading up to his fight against Santiago Ponzinibbio at Noche UFC on September 16.

In his showdown with Daniel Rodriguez, Ian Garry wasted no time in showcasing his dominance. Approximately midway through the first round, as ‘D-Rod’ was trying to establish himself, Garry unleashed a remarkable right head kick. This was followed by an intense ground-and-pound attack, forcing the referee to halt the contest at just 2 minutes and 57 seconds into the opening round.

What makes this victory even more extraordinary is that Ian Garry had remarkably predicted his strategy for conquering Rodriguez before the fight.

Fan responses flood in as Ian Garry’s previous UFC opponent departs.

The UFC’s decision to release Daniel Rodriguez has elicited a wide array of responses from fans.

One fan expressed concerns about the affordability of certain supplements, stating, “gonna be harder to afford ostraine now.”

Another fan questioned the rationale behind the release, noting Daniel’s impressive record of 7 wins out of 8 fights, including victories over fighters like Kevin Lee and Li Jingliang. They were puzzled by his release after losses to Neil Magny and Ian Garry.

Here are a few more reactions from fans:

  • “Of course, that’s why he said see you again to Dana when they last spoke.”
  • “D-Rod gone? Wtf.”
  • “No way, what?! This is BS!!! Who cares if he pissed hot once or twice…”
  • “Good riddance; he was never any good and a waste of airtime.”
  • “He was 36 anyway and lost his biggest fight.”
  • “No way, there has to be something more behind this.”
