1 year later Announced his retirement “Brave Heart” is back from mixed martial arts.
MMA Junkie learned today from two people with consensus knowledge of being lightweight in Scotland Stevie Ray (23-9) has agreed to a multi-fight contract with PFL and will debut in the 2022 season of the promotion. Those people demanded anonymity because the organization has not yet made an official announcement.
Ray has played 11 times under the UFC flag, most recently in October 2019, winning a majority decision over long-time veteran Michael Johnson. Ray was scheduled to play Marc Diakiese in March 2020, but withdrew from the contest due to a knee injury. He was later linked to a fight with Mike Davis in Abu Dhabi during the UFC’s “Fight Island”, but was unable to secure a visa for the event and was subsequently released from the promotion.
Frustrated Ray has since retired from sports but is now ready to return.
31-year-old Ray also owns a notable UFC victory, especially against Joe Lauzon and Ross Pearson.
Prior to his UFC run, Ray also owned titles in both the Cage Warrior and BAMMA European regional scenes.
