As champion he defended his belt two times before eventually losing it due to injury mid-fight against Alex Black at LFC 40. After this loss Kevin spent some time away from competition focusing on improving himself as an athlete and refining his skillset before signing with Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series that same year where he earned himself a contract with the UFC after winning via unanimous decision against Steven Peterson during Episode 5 of season 3 of DWTNCS.
