Me acaban de hacer una notificacion importante, 4 meses después de ultima lucha me comunican que dejo de ser luchador de UFC, con mi motivo de mi última derrota y algunos cambios dentro de la empresa, cuando todo parecía que seguía su curso normal según me iban informando. Pero así se presentan las cosas, y así hay que fluir con ellas. Se hizo todo lo que se pudo. Asi que muchas GRACIAS a todos por el apoyo recibido desde todas partes, de corazón lo digo. Seguiremos luchando en otras grandes ligas de momento, y a ver que nos depara el futuro, se cierra una etapa, y se abre otra. Y en eso...en eso consiste vivir. #supportwasabi #sutemi #rrteam #roninwear #ansgar #maxpronutition #reebokespaña #bemorehuman #protegetuspiños
Here is a translation for what Marin wrote on his Instagram post (provided by MMA Fighting):
"I have just been given an important notice. Four months after my last fight, I'm being informed that I'm no longer a UFC fighter due to my last loss, and some changes within the company, when everything seemed to be running in normal course according to what I was being informed. But that's how things present themselves in life, and you just have to flow with them. I did everything I could, so thanks to everyone for the support I received from every part, I say it from my heart. We're going to keep fighting in other current big leagues, and see what the future holds. A chapter closes and another opens. And that's what living consists of."
The UFC has not issued a statement on the release.
