Gray Maynard announces his drop to the featherweight division

Gregory J. Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

Former two-time UFC lightweight title challenger Gray Maynard announced his drop to the featherweight division via Twitter on Saturday.

Maynard (11-5-1-1NC) is currently 1-5 in his past 6 performances inside the octagon. Since losing the trilogy fight with then UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar via knockout, 'The Bully' hasn't performed too well in his fights causing many fans to question whether Maynard should continue fighting.

The former NCAA Division 1 All-American wrestler is looking to revitalize his career by dropping to the featherweight division. Maynard last competed this April at UFC Fight Night 63 where he lost via unanimous decision to Alexander Yakovlev.
