Report: Five More Names Part Ways With UFC

Just a day after it was reported that five names departed the UFC roster, a report from Damon Martin and Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting revealed five more names that have left the lineup.

Per the report, the UFC has parted ways with KB Bhullar, Yorgan De Castro, Bartosz Fabinski, Justine Kish and Oskar Piechota.

All of the fighters are leaving the lineup after consecutive losses.

Bhullar lost two fights since joining the UFC roster in October. His appearances saw him get stopped within a round by Tom Breese and fight to scorecards by Andreas Michailidis.

De Castro is leaving the UFC roster after three consecutive losses. His last fight was last month, where Jarjis Danho stopped him within a round with strikes.

He won his UFC debut in 2019, stopping Justin Tafa within a round.

Fabinski is one of the more experienced fighters to leave the UFC roster recently. His promotional run lasted from 2015 to 2021, including seven fights. He lost twice, including last month, before leaving the roster.

Kish’s UFC run has come to an end after seven fights. She has lost four of her last five, including a split decision last month against Tracy Cortez.

Piechota is out of the UFC after consecutive losses and a USADA suspension. The experienced middleweight has been winless in his last four fights, and was handed a 22-month USADA suspension earlier this month.

A total of 11 fighters have left the UFC since the start of the week. Earlier today, heavyweight Maurice Greene confirmed he is also no longer part of the roster.
