After suffering her third consecutive defeat, strawweight Valerie Letourneau’s days in the UFC are (at least for now) over. Letourneau announced the news to fans on her Instagram page.

Letourneau (8-6) debuted in the UFC in 2014, winning by split decision over Elizabeth Phillips at UFC 174 in a bantamweight bout. “Trouble” dropped down to strawweight, where wins over Jessica Rakoczy and Maryna Maroz netted her a title shot against Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 193 in November 2015. The Canadian lost to the reigning champion by unanimous decision.

Was her contract up? Regardless she can be used in Invicta.

Yeah Invicta seems like a good place for her, she lost 2 in a row and most of the time that gives you walking papers from the UFC. Even though, I thought she got robbed in her last fight.

Well on the bright side for Valerie, she'll fight at the most appropriate weight class for her and that's 125lbs.
