Frank LesterIt appears that welterweight Frank Lester has run out of chances to land a spot on the roster of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Sources informed FiveOuncesOfPain.com late Wednesday night that the Team Quest product received his formal release from the UFC shortly after losing via first round submission to Nick Osipczak during this past Saturday’s live finale for the ninth season of The Ultimate Fighter.

Lester qualified for TUF 9 as a member of Dan Henderson’s U.S. team after recording a first round TKO against Kiel Reid. However, he was eliminated from the competition in episode six after being submitted by James Wilks, the show’s eventual welterweight winner, following an armbar at 3:06 of round 2.

He would be given a second chance to advance in the competition after UFC President Dana White ruled that Jason Pierce would not be allowed to continue in the competition. Facing Dave Faulkner from the Team UK, Lester fought well and forced a third and final round. Lester advanced to the next stage of the competition after Faulkner was too tired to compete in the “sudden victory” portion of the fight.

Lester would once again face Wilks in the semifinals. For the second fight in a row, Lester forced a fight to go to “sudden victory” but he would not be as fortunate as he was against Faulkner after getting TKO’d by Wilks due to knees.
