Former Bellator Lightweight Champion Will Brooks, after being 1-3 in the UFC, announced via Instagram that he has been cut by the organization.

If you recall, after a victorious debut against Ross Pearson in 2016, Will Brooks lost to Alex Oliveira, Charles Oliveira and Nik Lentz, getting finished in each of the three fights.

He will now pursue his career at Professional Fighters League (PFL), competing in their $1 Million Tournament. For those of you who don’t know, PFL is the rebranded venture of the company once known as World Series of Fighting (WSOF) and their new $1 Million Tournament will feature 72 fighters across 6 weight classes, and will progress in a league format starting on June 7th and ending on December 31st.

Will Brooks had a terrible slump in form in the UFC

Will Brooks had this to say about his experiences at the UFC and what the future holds for him:

For those of you who have been asking when my next fight is… well, I’m not sure when the next will be but it will not be with the UFC but rather with the @profightleague in the Million Dollar tournament.

I’ve been doing this for a while now and I understand the business side of it. I didn’t do the job that was expected of me and like all jobs I was released, rightfully so.

Unfortunately, I under performed with the UFC and didn’t achieve the goal I wanted to with that opportunity.

I regret nothing, I took a chance at something I wanted and came up short. The fighter/competitor in me is highly disappointed with myself for allowing things to get away from me. The UFC chapter is closed for now… I’d like to thank the UFC staff for treating me so well during my employment.

From day one I was treated well and with respect. I appreciate that greatly.

For those of you who have been asking when my next fight is… well, I'm not sure when the next will be but it will not be with the UFC but rather with the @profightleague in the Million Dollar tournament. I've been doing this for a while now and I understand the business side of it. I didn't do the job that was expected of me and like all jobs I was released, rightfully so. Unfortunately, I under performed with the UFC and didn't achieve the goal I wanted to with that opportunity. I regret nothing, I took a chance at something I wanted and came up short. The fighter/competitor in me is highly disappointed with myself for allowing things to get away from me. The UFC chapter is closed for now… I'd like to thank the UFC staff for treating me so well during my employment. From day one I was treated well and with respect. I appreciate that greatly. Now with that being said, I am moving forward toward the next chapter. I'm extremely excited and fired up to be part of the @profighteague and their rebirth. The timing is perfect because I'm in my own rebirth process as well. As always I'm going to represent this organization as professionally as I possibly can. I look forward to being a pivotal part of the PFL's growth in this sport. All praise and glory to God. 1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. – Psalms 121:1-2 At my highest and my lowest, He's been with me and seen me through to lands of milk and honey. Thank you God for blessing me with this incredible opportunity for my family and myself. Now let's go secure this bag!!!! #Godisgood #hardwork #dedication #mma #ufc #PFL #professional #athlete #Godsplan #winningatlife #blackexcellence
