The Ultimate Fighting Championship has reportedly released another one of its more notable fighters. The latest victim is veteran middleweight Jason Lambert according to Five Ounces of Pain, who have confirmed Lambert’s departure with his manager, Matt Stansell.
Lambert’s release comes after the California native dropped three consecutive fights in the UFC, most recently being submitted by Jason MacDonald in his middleweight debut at UFC 88 in September, which was Lambert’s last fight with the promotion.
The North County Fight Club product entered the UFC in March 2006 after spending the better part of four years fighting in smaller shows. Lambert won his first three fights in the promotion and was on his way to becoming a contender in the light heavyweight division before being knocked out at the hands of Rashad Evans at UFC 63. Lambert bounced back to score a highlight reel knockout of Renato “Babalu” Sobral at UFC 68 before falling into his losing streak.
