Recently, UFC fired 12 fighters at the same time. Later we met Sergio Moraes’s dismissal as well. And now we discover that the same has happened with Gray Maynard, one of the most veteran athletes who were part of the cast of this company. For 12 years he was competing in the most famous octagon in the world.
UFC dismisses Gray Maynard
MMA Junkie reports that “The Bully” will not continue working in the company after interviewing him.
“We are working on some things. He was no longer part of the UFC so I am seeing what my next step will be, although I will continue in the featherweight.”
Maynard leaves the UFC with a total record of 13-7-1. All his professional fights, except for the first two, he played in this company. In the last one, he was defeated by Nik Lentz.
He lived his best moment in 2011 when he fought twice for the UFC World Lightweight Championship. Until then, until he was defeated in the rematch by Frankie Edgar, he was undefeated.
