    Before leaving the UFC, Foster was on a 2 fight win steak, won 3 of his last 4 fights and had just finished Matt Brown. Noticed he has an upcoming fight against Gaethje (which should be a great fight) and was just curious about his departure from the UFC.

    He had a brain hemorrage show up on a scan and ended up with a lot of time off. Gets cleared to train, takes the worst nut shot ever and bursts a testicle. Then the UFC released him.

    Thanks. Had no idea, but sounds like something UFC would do. Glad to see him having success in Bellator, he's fun to watch.

    he couldn't pass his pre-fight medicals

    then something happened, not saying right or wrong, but something happened and he returned to fighting

    Foster's brain issues has caused him to fail medical tests. It sounded like different athletic commissions had their own standards on if they would allow him to compete.
