Scottish lightweight Stevie Ray has officially announced his retirement from the world of mixed martial arts. After a successful career spanning several years, Ray has decided to hang up his gloves and move on to the next chapter of his life.
Throughout his career, Ray has showcased his skills and determination inside the octagon. With a record of 25-13, he has left a lasting impact on the sport.
Ray’s journey in the UFC was filled with ups and downs. Between 2015 and 2017, he experienced a surge in popularity with an impressive 5-1 record. However, a series of losses and injuries eventually led to his departure from the organization.
Following his exit from the UFC, Ray faced a three-year period of inactivity. It was a challenging time for the Scottish fighter, but he never lost sight of his passion for the sport.
In 2022, Ray made a strong comeback in the Professional Fighters League (PFL). He showcased his skills with back-to-back wins over Anthony Pettis, proving that he still had what it takes to compete at a high level.
Unfortunately, Ray’s 2023 regular season in the PFL didn’t go as planned. He faced tough opponents and ended the season with a 0-2 record. Despite the setbacks, Ray’s determination and resilience remained unwavering.
Now, as he bids farewell to the sport that has been a significant part of his life, Ray looks forward to new opportunities and challenges. His retirement marks the end of an era, but his legacy will continue to inspire future generations of fighters.
