Lavar Johnson's UFC career, at least for now, has come to an unceremonious conclusion.The hard-hitting heavyweight has been released from his UFC contract, the promotion confirmed with MMAFighting.com Thursday. MMAJunkie.com first reported the news.
As a result, Johnson, who did not apply for a therapeutic use exemption for testosterone replacement therapy, was suspended for nine months by the CSAC. That suspension coupled with his recent losing streak made him expendable.
The 35-year-old Johnson leaves the UFC with a 17-7 record.
