The former interim lightweight contender Kevin Lee is no longer part of the UFC organization.
Teh 29-year-old has been racking losses after losses in his recent outings, having lost 5 of his 7 previous bouts.
During that period he also had issues making weight at lightweight and so was moving up to welterweight at times, and to make matters worse after his last loss he tested positive for the banned substance Adderall, which had resulted in a six month ban.
“If there was ever a time to be a free agent it’s now,” Lee’s manager Marquel Martin said. “Kevin Lee has a lot of great opportunities waiting for him outside the UFC.”
Lee made his UFC debut in 2014 and his pro MMA record stands at 18-7.
