Why was Kevin Lee removed from UFC and removed from his contract? UFC made wrong decision to release

The UFC is bringing a thrilling event every week, which is bad news for UFC fans when former lightweight contender Kevin Lee was officially cut off from the UFC. Kevin Lee's manager, Markel Martin, said: "The UFC has made the wrong decision, but according to Lee's agreement, Lee still has two fights". Kevin Lee's manager Markel Martin added: "I think the UFC made the wrong decision to release him, but we're sure there will be more bright days in Kevin's career. Although Kevin Lee fought 18 fights during his 7-year long career. He is one of the most talented fighters in the lightweight division. But he was never able to put all his eggs in one basket and go upstairs. The fight against Tony Ferguson at UFC 216 was the culmination of his UFC career. Although Lee stumbled upon El Aquinta in his first fight. The fight took place on February 1, 2014. Since losing to El Aquinta, Lee has fought 17 more UFC fights. He has a career record of 18 wins and 7 losses in 25 fights. He entered the UFC with an unbeaten record of 7-0. Since that fight in 2017, Kevin Lee's organization has had a lot of ups and downs. He fought only 6 times in 4 years. Lee struggled with weight loss of up to 155 pounds. So he tried his hand at the welterweight division. The 29-year-old went around two weight classes for his last few fights with little success. The Motown Phenom lost 4 of its last 6 matches. With just 2 wins in the last 4 years, the release has not been a shock. Lee joins Truststar Gym in Canada, run by Fras Dhahbi. Fighters like George St. Pierre and Rory MacDonald came through the system and reached great heights. But in Kevin Lee's case, it didn't work out because he never regained the momentum he had lost before his defeat to Tony Ferguson. Kevin Lee last fought against Daniel Rodriguez at UFC Vegas 35 in August and lost the decision to set up two-fight skids. He recently received a six-month suspension and a 16K fine for using Adderall and will be eligible to fight again in Nevada in February. How do you view Kevin Lee's career? ?
