March 8, 2022
Felipe (suspension) was released by the UFC on Tuesday, Guilherme Cruz of reports.
Felipe hasn't had a particularly impressive career since joining the UFC in 2017. His 3-2 record with the promotion is perfectly acceptable, but he also got suspended twice over that period. His most recent suspension, an 18-month ban for Boldenone, will keep him out until April of next year. His eventual return won't be as a UFC fighter.

Hit with 18-month ban
January 18, 2022
Felipe was suspended for 18 months Tuesday after testing positive for the performance-enhancing drug Boldenone, reports.
The failed test took place back on Oct. 16, the same date he lost to Andrei Arlovski by unanimous decision. Felipe will now be ineligible to compete until April 16, 2023.
Win streak snapped at three
October 16, 2021
Felipe lost to Andrei Arlovski via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
There's an argument to be made that Felipe deserved a better fate, but the truth of the matter is that there was extremely little separating these two men, and it's difficult to get worked up about the decision one way or another. Felipe's best round was the third, but he appeared to clearly lose the first while the second could have gone either way. The overall striking numbers were quite close, with Arlovski holding a slight 84-73 edge (unofficially). The loss snaps a three-fight winning streak for Felipe, although the Brazilian is just 26 years of age and there should be plenty of time for him to recover moving forward.
Taking on Arlovski in October
July 7, 2021
Felipe will fight Andrei Arlovski at the Oct. 16 UFC event, reports.
Felipe is on a roll, as he's won his last three fights, including a split decision over Jake Collier in June. The 26-year-old Felipe will look to keep that momentum rolling against the 42-year-old Arlovski.
Win streak hits three
June 12, 2021
Felipe defeated Jake Collier via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC 263 on Saturday in Glendale, Arizona.
It's remarkable this fight saw the final bell considering the bombs these two men were unloading upon each other. Felipe deserves credit for picking up the pace following a slow start. On the flip side, he attempted just 192 total strikes compared to 281 from Collier. In a bout with little separating the two men, Felipe's inactivity could have potentially cost him. The judges (well, two of them) ultimately deemed Felipe did enough to win, and he picked up his third straight decision victory, all in the span of the past eight months.
Booked for UFC 263
March 3, 2021
Felipe will take on Jake Collier (orbital) in a heavyweight matchup at UFC 263 on June 12, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Felipe is coming off back-to-back victories, and June will present him an opportunity to secure a third straight win. Collier, meanwhile, is coming off a six-month medical suspension due to a fracture of his left lateral orbital wall, but should now be fully healthy.
