Former UFC Fighter Stevie Ray Is Out Of Retirement
One year ago, Stevie Ray announced his retirement after being released from the UFC.
But just a few days ago, according to some rumors, he will return to professional MMA and sign with the PFL. Nothing is official yet and no contracts are signed.
Ray (23-9 MMA, 7-4 UFC) signed in the UFC in 2015. He fought 11 times in this promotion and earned seven victories.
The last time the lightweight fighter competed was against one of the best boxers of the division, Michael Johnson. He earned a majority decision victory with the fastest hands.
He also shared octagon with Paul Felder. But he suffered a brutal knockout loss in that bout.
He was supposed to go against Mike Davis in Abu Dhabi, but could not get a visa to attend the event.
The UFC then cut him from the promotion, and Ray decided to retire. He was continuing to coach and develop his gym, Braveheart MMA, in Kirkcaldy, Scotland.
But Ray is still young; he is only 31 years old and can compete at a high level.
He is a former Cage Warriors and BAMMA champion, so that we might witness another title in his collection next year.
