By Susan Cox - December 3, 2021

The UFC has continued to trim its active roster by parting ways with four more fighters.

Dana White, The UFC

That news comes from MMAJunkie, who reported that Impa Kasanganay, John Allan, Liana Jojua and Bharat Khandare have been cut or let go by the organization.

The roster moves, unless explicitly noted, are not necessarily considered as cuts. The UFC may have elected not to re-sign certain fighters who were at the end of their contracts.

Impa Kasanganay

Kasanganay (9-2 MMA) was let go shortly after suffering a first round TKO loss to Carlston Harris back in September. Impa, a former standout on “Dana White’s Contender Series”, went 2-2 during his four fights under the UFC banner.
