Maki Pitolo Among Three Departures From UFC Roster

Four fighters have recently parted ways with the UFC, per a report from Nolan King of MMA Junkie. Maki Pitolo, Jared Gooden and Matt Sayles are reportedly no longer on the UFC roster.

Pitolo was the most active fighter of all on the list. He joined the UFC roster in 2019 after winning on “Dana White’s Contender Series,” and competed in six bouts while with the promotion.

Pitolo’s UFC run is concluding after a four-fight losing streak. His last fight was in late 2021, getting stopped by Dusko Todorovic.

Gooden fought four times in the UFC, putting together a record of one win and three losses. His last appearance was in October, where Randy Brown beat him on scorecards.

Sayles had an identical UFC record to Gooden from 2018 to 2021.

Sayles made his return in December, competing for the first time in two years. He was submitted in that fight, getting finished in the second round by Jordan Leavitt.
