Gokhan Saki has been released by the UFC and it looks the kickboxing legend might be headed back to his roots.
Beyond Kickboxing reported that Saki had been cut by the promotion via a tweet. The former Glory light heavyweight champion went 1-1 inside the Octagon, last competing against Khalil Rountree Jr. at UFC 226 and getting finished via a TKO in just the first two minutes of the bout.
