Nate Loughran (9-1), who compiled a 1-1 record in the UFC middleweight division with a victory over Johnny Rees and a loss to Tim Credeur, has been granted his release by the promotion.

According to MMA Junkie, who confirmed the release on Sunday with the fighter’s manager, Loughran plans on dropping to the 170-pound welterweight division and gaining experience outside the octagon, but hopes to eventually return to the UFC.

Loughran had been scheduled to fight Nissen Osterneck at UFC Fight Night 18, but withdrew from the proposed contest due to an injury.
