Lucas Martins released from UFC following a win

<p>The UFC has decided not to renew Lucas Martins&rsquo; contract despite the fact he is coming off of a win.</p> <p>In April, Martins entered a bout against Robert Whiteford at UFC Zagreb coming off of back-to-back losses and won via split-decision, extending his UFC record to 4-3. That fight was the last on his contract and, despite getting back in the win column, the UFC wasn&rsquo;t interested re-signing him.</p> <p>Martins entered the UFC in 2013 when he accepted a short-notice bout against Edson Barboza, who he lost to via first-round TKO. The highlight of Martins&rsquo; UFC run was between 2013 and 2014 when he won three straight fights all by way of stoppage.</p> <p><a href="http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/5/19/11715702/ufc-parts-ways-with-lucas-martins-despite-recent-win-over-robert">Martins spoke with MMAFighting</a> about the UFC&rsquo;s decision not to renew his contract, saying that the UFC told his manager the division was crowded and that they would re-sign him after a couple impressive wins in local promotions.</p> <p>&quot;My manager [Diego] Lima was talking to the UFC, and said that the division is full,&quot; Martins told MMAFighting. &quot;Even though I was coming off a win, my contract is over and they told me to get a couple more wins outside the UFC, two nice knockouts, and they would definitely sign me again.&rdquo;</p>
