Mike Wilkinson released from the UFC

After a 2-2 stint in the UFC, Brit Mike Wilkinson has been cut from the promotion as he has just announced on the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani.

The Lightweight who trains out of the Atherton Submission Wrestling gym, last competed at #UFCLondon suffering a unanimous decision loss to Makwan Amirkhani.

Undoubtably the highlight of his UFC career came in Sweden when he came in as heavy underdog against Niklas Backstrom and stopped the Swede in just over a minute.

Prior to signing with the UFC, Wilkinson was on a seven fight unbeaten streak including wins over Artem Lobov and Ali Maclean.
