It looks like TUF 13 finalist Ramsey Nijem's UFC career has come to a close after 4 years with the promotion. Nijem went 5-5 in his long stint with the UFC, but is coming off 4 loses in his last 6 bouts.

It's the beginning of the month, which means the UFC is updating their website to reflect their current roster. While not an official announcements per se, the deletion of these profiles usually signifies a fighter being released, and UFCFIGHTERSiNFO has listed the recent changes.

Nijem joins 3 other fighters who have been removed from the roster in Elias SilverioJorge Oliveira, and Nazareno Malegarie.

Silverio and Oliveira have both lost two straight before getting the axe, making TUF Brazil's Malegarie the only minor surprise on this month's cut list. After his stint at TUF, the Bellator vet officially fought just once with the UFC, dropping a split decision to Joaquim Silva at UFC 191.

Bloody Elbow will have more in depth news and analysis on this month's chopping block soon.
