UFC Releases Modestas Bukauskas After Four-Fight Run

Former Cage Warriors Light Heavyweight Champion Modestas Bukauskas has reportedly been released from the UFC roster after four fights. His departure from the promotion was first reported by Damon Martin of MMA Fighting on Wednesday.

Bukauskas is parting ways with the promotion after posting one win and three losses.

He started his run last year with a win, getting a stoppage victory against Andreas Michailidis. Bukauskas has since fallen into a three-fight losing streak since October 2020.

He suffered a gruesome injury in his last fight, as an oblique kick from Khalil Rountree stopped him in September. Injuries from the fight, which occurred to his knee and nose, required surgery afterward.

Bukauskas has addressed his release via social media.

“Life really f****** sucks sometimes … I’ll be back,” said Bukauskas on an Instagram Story post.
