Khonry Gracie Among 18 Fighters Removed From Bellator Roster

It appears that Khonry Gracie‘s time with Bellator has come to an end.

Per MMA Junkie, Gracie was among 18 fighters removed from the promotion’s roster. Whether each fighter was cut by Bellator or decided to leave themselves is currently unknown. Former featherweight champion Dan Strauss and UFC veteran Bec Rawlings were also among those who will no longer be fighting for the promotion.

Khonry, who is the son of jiu-jitsu legend Royce Gracie, had his first professional MMA fight with the promotion in 2018: a unanimous decision loss to Devon Brock. He went on to win his next two fights (one via decision and one via first-round armbar), but then suffered a TKO loss at the hands of Trevor Gudde at the end of 2020.

The 24-year-old welterweight has yet to share any plans for his future in MMA, should he decide to pursue one.

The full list of the removed fighters is below:

  • Daniel Straus
  • Bec Rawlings
  • Tywan Claxton
