UFC Parts Ways With Flyweight Liana Jojua

UFC has made the call to part ways with Liana Jojua after a four-fight run with them. News of Jojua’s departure from the promotion was confirmed by Guilherme Cruz and Damon Martin of MMA Fighting on Thursday.

Jojua’s stint resulted in an unsuccessful one win and three losses.

She made her UFC debut in 2019, losing to Sarah Moras at UFC 242.

Jojua picked up her sole UFC win in her next appearance, securing a first-round armbar win over Diana Belbita in July 2020.

Jojua’s exit from the promotion comes after two consecutive losses. Her most recent defeat was just last weekend, where she dropped a unanimous decision to Cortney Casey.

Jojua also missed weight for that fight, coming in two-and-a-half pounds over the non-championship limit at flyweight.
