Woodley arguably the greatest welterweight of all time lost to Kamaru Usman. Woodley got dominated by Usman the ENTIRE fight. However Woodley is strong minded and is returning to fight Robbie Lawler on June 29th. Thought Woodley was going to get a rematch against Usman but guess not…
Thought Woodley was going to get a rematch, PPV Main event against Usman but was completely wrong. However Woodley has to climb back to the top and win the Welterweight title! Woodley though has no tough task against Lawler.
“Robbie Lawler looked better than ever against Askren.” Joe Rogan
Before Woodley KO’d Lawler, Lawler was a killer. Lawler was in five round wars but came out on top!! Defended the belt multiple times, During his reign was one of the best fighters on the planet.
Robbie looks like the Robbie of old and that means the welterweight division is in trouble. Woodley vs Lawler fight is going to be fascinating to watch, Have no idea who will win. However tune in June 29th on ESPN to see who comes out on top!!
Israel Adesanya and Kamaru Usman are two fighters from Nigeria, World Class fighters. Usman welterweight champion and Adensanya can be the next champion by facing Kelvin Gastelum. Next two future champions are Sodiq Yusuff and Kennedy Nzechukwu. Both young hungry lions from Nigeria.

“Nzechukwu’s start in MMA was like any story should start. “It was always something I wanted to do, especially when I was back in Nigeria. I used to read newspapers and see Chuck Liddell, and see other guys like the Gracies. I was like, ‘What is this for, people fighting for money? This is something I would love to do.’” Cage Side Press.Com
Without a doubt these two men will be future champions in couple years, Becoming two other UFC Africa Champions!
Kevin Lee moving up to welterweight to face Rafael Dos Anjos. Lee used to be a lightweight but the cut was HORRIBLE FOR HIM.
“The weight cut, was what it was. I wasn’t going to let down the whole show, let down everybody. I was going to make weight, even if I had to cut my foot off or something,” he said. “It damn near killed me, but I had to do what I had to do. I got job to do. I’m a professional. I would come out here no matter how bad it hurts. I felt like I put my best performance on tonight, but by the third round it was just too much for me.” SB Nation
Kevin Lee is a beast, One of the best young fighters in the UFC today. Lee already competed for a UFC Title and headlined 4 main events. Lee at welterweight is very fascinating, Lee is a new addition to the welterweight division, Giving Usman, Covington, Woodley, Askren a lot of trouble.
Possible for Kevin Lee to become the UFC Welterweight champion of the world. Lee can go on a complete tear first by beating Rafael Dos Anjos and other top 5-10 welterweights. Lee is an all around fighter and has so much potential. Kevin Lee can be one of the stars of the UFC and it may start now!
Soren Bak is the Cage Warriors Lightweight and interim Featherweight champion. Cage Warriors is the best European promotion having world class fighters showcase their talents here. Cage Warriors had Michael Bisping, Dan Hardy, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Conor McGregor.
Soren has beaten European prospects at Cage Warriors and now it’s time to beat UFC fighters!
Conor the star of the UFC, The Irish Warrior who brought his whole country with him. Conor’s title run at the featherweight division was amazing and winning the lightweight title against Eddie Alvarez were incredible times. The Mayweather vs McGregor tour was very entertaining and the fight will never be forgotten in combat sports history. Conor vs Khabib was a dream fight for the ages but Conor got obliterated.
Conor net worth is 100 to 150 million dollars, Hard to continue to fighting when your rich. However if Conor is intrigued to fight again who will he fight?
Conor vs Khabib 2
Conor vs Khabib 1 had 2.4 PPV Buys which was good business for everybody. The second fight can be 3.5 PPV buys which is a lot of money for the UFC. It’s a fight to make but Conor is going to lose.
Conor vs Holloway
Conor fought Max when Max was a kid. Max is the best featherweight of all time, Both fighters are strikers. It can be a very entertaining fight and a fight for the ages. Fight that makes sense. Max moved up to lightweight to fight Dustin Poirier, Conor vs Max can be a lightweight fight.
Conor vs Nate Diaz 3
Both fights were top 10 greatest fights of all time in the UFC. Selled well PPV wise and Conor just wants fights that make him the most money. The Third Fight is what everybody wants to see, Has to happen eventually.
Conor vs Woodley
Conor and Tyron have been trash talking for a while, Since UFC 205. Woodley is one of the best welterweights of all time. Woodley can sell fights but never had a partner to sell it with. Conor fought at 170 once against Nate Diaz. Possibly be a WelterWeight fight or a catchweight fight.
Overall Conor is a star, He’s been tweeting a lot lately trying to hype up fights, See what makes the most sense to him. Love to see Conor fight once or twice and the whole world would love to see Conor return inside the Octagon.
The obvious fights to watch is the Legend himself Anthony Pettis fighting Stephen Thompson. The other fights/ Fighters to watch is Curtis Blaydes vs Justin Willis, Both young Heavyweights looking to contend for a heavyweight title…Soon.
Besides the main event and co main event there are some excellent fights and fighters to watch. Young HUNGRY Lions looking to become UFC champions one day.

Sean Brady isn’t Tom Brady’s younger brother or cousin, Sean Brady is a MMA fighter who signed with UFC on March 7th 2019. Brady one of the top welterweight prospects in the United States and it shows with a record of 10-0, Brady fighting for one of the best MMA regional promotions in Cage Fury Fighting Championship. Brady trains with Eddie Alvarez sometimes, Brady sees Eddie as a mentor. Sean Brady trains out of Renzo Gracie Philly Gym based in Philadelphia which is Eddie’s hometown!
“Brady has spent plenty of time with Philadelphia’s own Eddie Alvarez. Not only has Brady been on the mats with the former UFC and Strikeforce champion, but Alvarez recently endorsed him on social media.” Sean Brady on MMA Fighting. Com
“I talk to Eddie probably once a week or something like that,” Brady said. “He’s just a great guy and a great mentor for Philly fighters. When I was coming up I didn’t even have any fights and everyone wanted to be Eddie or say they knew Eddie. ” Sean Brady on MMA Fighting.Com
Sean Brady headlined the main event card four times in a row. Perfect for Sean is he built a well known brand going into the UFC, Sean like I said before was the CFFC Welterweight champion and fought once for the Legacy Fighting Alliance. CFFC is on UFC Fight Pass and LFA is on AXS TV. In other words people know who Brady is which makes Dana White’s life lot easier!
Brady is an all around fighter with a boatload of talent, I know talent when I see it and Brady without a doubt in my mind is a future champ! Might be crazy but looks like George “Rush” St Pierre.

One FC killing it lately signing Eddie Alvarez, Trading for Demetrious Johnson, Signing Sage Northcutt and Vitor Belfort. One FC signed Alvarez for eight figure deal, Showing future MMA free agents the impact free agency has for fighters. Paying veteran fighters from UFC and Bellator eight figures will attract a lot of world class fighters. ONE FC being another player in the MMA promotions that can compete with UFC and Bellator in so many ways. What fighters will be perfect for ONE FC or will be the next to sign with Bellator?
“Look without getting into details, the package in general is going to be an eight-figure deal. Eight figure fight deal. A guaranteed eight-figure fight deal in total. They made me true partner, which I am happy about, and they fully committed to me and we’re fully committing back,” explained Eddie Alvarez on SB Nation
Gustaffson one of the best light heavyweight fighters in the world should sign with ONE FC. Alexander has to compete with Jon Jones and deal with crazy Jon Jones who always gets in trouble. Gustaffson loss to Jones twice and lost to Cormier once. I don’t believe Gustaffson will ever be a UFC champion.
Beat Glover Teixeria and Shogun Rua
Rafael Dos Anjos
Rafael Dos Anjos in 2014 and 2015 you can argue was one the best fighter on the planet. Dos Anjos was a killer couple years ago. Dos Anjos was the UFC LIGHTWEIGHT Champion, However he’s fallen off since than. Dos Anjos in a two fight losing streak. Dos Anjos in a division with young hungry lions in Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington. Dos Anjos will never be a UFC champion again, He should request a release from Dana and head to ONE FC. Dos Anjos make a couple of millions of dollars.
Beat Pettis, Cerrone, Nate Diaz and Benson Henderson.
UFC Lightweight Champion
Edson Barboza is another killer, Will never be a UFC champion because the lightweight division is stacked. Besides Muay Thai fighters he’s one of the best kickers in MMA. Barboza signing with ONE FC will make him a millionaire and a ONE FC champion.
Benson Henderson fights for Bellator in the lightweight division. Benson signed a deal with Bellator leaving UFC. Henderson under Bellator he’s never one a title. Benson has a 3-3 record fighting for Bellator which I thought he would dominate there but that’s not the case. Maybe under One FC, New change of scenery he becomes the Henderson of old!! Make some money Benson and win a ONE FC lightweight title!
Three time defending UFC lightweight Champion
Beat Frankie Edgar twice!, Beat Nate Diaz, and Gilbert Melendez

Yoel Romero is just a freak of athlete, Think Romero was a roman gladiator sculpture. Yoel one of the best freestylers in the world. Yoel is 41 years old, Don’t know how many years he has left but use the time with ONE FC. Get paid Yoel. I just love his story immigrating from Cuba to the United States. Romero winning the UFC middleweight title. One FC has the perfect weight cut program where Romero instead of fighting in the middleweight division, Fights in the Light Heavyweight division is the best weight for him.
Beat Machida, Weidman, Souza, and Rockhold
Won Gold Medal 10 times as a Freestyle Wrestler
Overall One FC is another promotion that can make an impact in the MMA world. One FC signing former UFC and Bellator champions has them compete with UFC and Bellator. Signing the fighters I just listed can have ONE FC be the second best promotion in the world. ONE FC already has talented fighters like Bibiano Fernandes, Kevin Belingnon, Martin Nguyen, Aung La Nsang, Brandon Vera, Signing these fighters can make world class title fights and attract new ONE FC fans.

Aaron Pico has the makings to be a Bellator Featherweight Champion at 23 or 24 years old. Pico is a world class wrestler who can probably win a gold medal at the Olympics if he chose too. Pico can be like Khabib and dominate mostly every fighter. However he lives and dies by the sword and wants to go to a striking war. Pico lost to Henry Corrales in the first round.
If Pico was patient when fighting and was more careful, The sky’s the limit for this kid.Pico defending the belt, Seven times for Bellator and making millions of dollars. Pico has the potential to be a star for MMA, Bringing a whole new fanbase to MMA as Pico represents the future MMA fighters of Tomorrow. Pico having endorsements with Nike, Gucci because he wears suits all the time, Coca Cola, Endorsements with supplement companies, Organic food endorsements.

Jorge Masvidal star of the night is reborn beating Darren Till and Leon Edwards. The upset of the year so far, Whoever bet Masvidal to win made lots of money!
Jorge Masvidal def. Darren Till via knockout (punches) – Round 2, 3:05
Masvidal looking better than ever. First round was getting punched a lot, Losing the first round. Till knocked down Masvidal in the first round but Masvidal is tough as nails with a strong chin at 34 years old. Second round Masvidal was reborn in the second round, Fighting like he was a Welterweight champion.
Masvidal won his next fight backstage against Leon Edwards, Nobody disrespects Jorge Masvidal!
Masvidal later spoke with ESPN’s Brett Okamoto to explain his side of the story. According to him, Edwards had already been trying to start things up on social media, until it all spilled over into his interview. “So I’m doing my interview, and this hooligan comes by and he’s saying some stuff. ‘July, you’ll get your ass kicked!’ or ‘July!’ and I go, ‘Maybe’, because maybe, I want to kick your ass in April,” he explained. “Maybe I don’t want to wait until July. Maybe I don’t even want to fight you in a prized ring because you’re not worth the training camp, I’ll just fight you here. Because you’re a scrub. “As I’m walking up to him, I got my hands behind my back to signal I’m not coming here for problems. But he put his hands up, it’s on video, and he walks towards me. Well, where I’m from, if you do that, you’re gonna punch me in the face. And that’s not gonna happen, Leon.”
Masvidal was top of the MMA headlines for Saturday night and it’s well deserved. Masvidal was the main event Saturday and possibly be the main event again fighting Leon Edwards. Masvidal vs Edwards can be the main event for a ESPN plus card or be the prelim main event for a PPV. UFC definitely can promote this fight, Get a lot of views. Makes sense to have Masvidal vs Edwards!
KSW is one of the best promotions in the world. KSW is the top Polish promotion and has two world class fighters. Two of the best fighters KSW has is Roberto Soldic, Soldic is the KSW welterweight champion.
Stipe got knocked out by Daniel Cormier under a minute. That was the last time we seen Stipe fight. Will he ever step foot inside the octagon again? Thought Cormier would give Miocic a rematch but it never happened because it wasn’t a money fight.
“He deserves a rematch if I don’t get to fight Brock. I’ve always stood by that. But you can’t just go, ‘Well, you owe it to me.’ I don’t want to sit here and talk bad about Stipe because I like Stipe. I think he’s a good guy. He’s a fantastic father. He’s a pillar of the community. He’s a great fighter. I think he’s great. But you can’t sit there and say, ‘He owes me.’” MMA fighting.com Daniel Cormier
Miocic is going to have to wait for Cormier to retire. Miocic returns and has his title run, Becomes the UFC champion by beating Lewis, Ngannou or the new youth!!
“In a perfect world, which we know this isn’t a perfect world, I think you see Brock, I think you see Stipe and hopefully Jon Jones,” White said. “Those are his three and he’ll go out with a bang man, then he’ll probably retire.”Dana White MMA Junkie
Douglas Lima vs Michael “Venom” Page Lima wins by unanimous decision
Douglas Lima one of the best welterweights in the world. He’s an all-around fighter beating Lorenz Larkin, Paul Daley and Andrey Koreshkov. Michael Page is just a world class stand up striker. Lima is going to take his time and not strike with him.
“Douglas Lima is a killer,” Coker said in a promotional video leading up to Saturday’s Bellator NYC pay-per-view affair at Madison Square Garden in New York. “I’ll say here, he is the best welterweight in the world right now.” MMA JUNKIE
Rory MacDonald vs Jon Fitch, Rory 2nd round or 3rd KO!!
Rory might be the best welterweight in the world. Rory is the 170 champion, He had one of the greatest fights against Robbie Lawler, Beat Woodley, Beat Demian Maia. Jon Fitch is a legend, Been fighting since the early 2000’s and Fitch had a title fight with GSP.
“I love that Rory MacDonald’s over there. He’s the champ. If he’s not the best welterweight in the world, it’s him and Tyron (Woodley). He’s most certainly one of the best. (Gegard) Mousasi is one go the best 185ers in the world, if not the best. They have legit claim to world-class fighters now in at least two weight classes.” Lowkick MMA
Rory MacDonald vs Neiman Gracie, Rory wins in the 3rd round.
Neiman is going to give Rory a really tough fight. Rory needs to keep Gracie standing up because Neiman is a world class submission specialist. Gracie don’t get me wrong is a world class fighter , Coming into his own when he beat Ed Ruth. Upset win.
Final fight Rory Vs Lima. Rory wins in SPLIT DECISION.
The title fight will be one of the best title fights in 2019. Putting Bellator on the map with millions of views.
Max Holloway moving up to the lightweight division to fight Dustin Poirier. Max Holloway will stay in the lightweight division. What’s the future of the division look like now ?
Jose Aldo is reborn, Two Fight win streak. Aldo probably has one more title run in him.
“Aldo revealed on Wednesday afternoon that he intends to fight the last three bouts on his current contract with the UFC in 2019 and is hopeful all three fights are staged in Brazil before hanging up his gloves for good (viaMMA Fighting): “
Aldo is fighting Alexander Volkanovski, Volkanovski is on a 16 fight win streak! He just beat Chad Mendes.
“While Aldo initially revealed that he hadn’t heard of the Australian fighter, whichdidn’t seem to bother Volkanovski all that much, Aldo’s head coach, Andre Pederneiras, is now singing a different tune. “We want him to fight Alexander Volkanovski, the guy who knocked out Chad Mendes, the guy who is the best ranked,” Pederneiras toldConfraria da Porrada . “In fact, it is the following: we have a dream to dispute the title, which is difficult. So we have the dream of our last fight to get there.” MMA Mania and Sb Nation
Brian Ortega is a future featherweight champion either this year or in 2020. Ortega had a really tough fight with Max Holloway but that’s a learning experience, Ortega is extremely talented and a all around fighter.
Ortega hasn’t fought since that fight and I believe he will face rising star Zabit Magomedsharipov.
“He’s not a top 10 guy, he’s a top five guy,” Henry told FOX Sports. “He could be champ today. I’ve seen a natural in baseball, football, boxing, but never MMA. Just too many disciplines. He’s the first natural MMA fighter I’ve ever seen. He can do it all.” Fox Sports
Zabit is a human highlight video and it will be a interesting fight to watch. Zabit is an all around fighters and just beat world class fighter Jeremy Stephens!!
Last win for Ortega was Frankie Edgar who he knocked out in the first round!!!Edgar the legend hasn’t fought since beating Cub Swanson in April of 2018. Edgar was supposed to fight Chan Sung Jung in November but Edgar torn his biceps. Edgar hopefully this year gets a title shot, Maybe fights Aldo if he beats Volkanovski.
Kyoji Horiguchi the Rizin bantamweight champion fought Darrion Caldwell, The Bellator bantamweight champion in Japan. It was very interesting to see a dream fight like that. Maybe there’s other dream fights to come?
Illima- Lei Macfarlane Bellator Flyweight Champ vs Valentina Schevchenko UFC Flyweight champ
One FC, Taking over Asia just like Pride did. One FC rapidly growing in the last couple years, Having there own app where you can watch fights for free. One FC definitely one of the best promotions and probably can be second best promotion in the world. One FC beating Bellator to be #2.
One FC is killing it with signing Eddie Alvarez, Demetrious Johnson, Sage Northcutt and Vitor Belfort. One FC offering a lot of money to these fighters and make them partners. One FC can attract a lot of free agents that way.
“Look without getting into details, the package in general is going to be an eight-figure deal. Eight figure fight deal. A guaranteed eight-figure fight deal in total. They made me true partner, which I am happy about, and they fully committed to me and we’re fully committing back,” explained Eddie Alvarez
Demetrious Johnson One Esports Brand Ambassador (Link Below)
UFC hands down is the best MMA promotion in the world. The UFC has competition however with Bellator, One Fc and the Professional Fighters League. It’s a new era for MMA and it’s amazing for fans and fighters. Fans have a lot more options now.
Before when UFC bought Pride, Strikeforce, WEC and WFA there was no competition left. UFC buying the fighters contracts, Having the best roster in the world. Now the promotions I’ve listed all have talented rosters, Not as deep like UFC but still talented.
Promos top fighters
Bellator- Rory McDonald, Michael Chandler, Ryan Bader, Gegard Mousasi, Douglas Lima, Darrion Caldwell
One FC- Bibiano Fernandes, Aung La Sang, Brandon Vera, Eduard Folayang, Martin Nguyen, Kevin Belingon
PFL- Lance Palmer, Jake Shields, Andre Harrison, Ray Cooper III, Vinny Magalhães and Phillipe Lins
Now there’s completion with talented rosters. Now as well get to watch these promotions on television or digitally. ESPN has a five year deal with the UFC and has a Two year deal with the PFL. ONE FC has a three year deal with TNT and Bleacher Report. Bellator has Paramount Network and has a 5 year, 100 million dollar deal with DAZN. All of these new deals is just amazing for MMA.
Crowd in Liverpool roaring when Till was fighting, Stephen Wonderboy Thompson. Crowd singing “Sweet Caroline.” I remember watching this fight and was amazed. Michael Bisping passed the torch to Till and be the King of England!!!!!
Joe Rogan on Darren Till
“Total class act move by @darrentill2 I love the guy for his fighting skills and love him even more for what he said here. BRAVO!!”
“It just hurts because I got there, I was nearly there to do what I set out to do, get that belt and be the greatest,” Till told reporters during his post-fight media scrum (transcript viaMMA Fighting). “I am still gonna be the greatest, I know that. I just spoke to Woodley backstage and he’s lost.Jon Joneshas lost.Georges St-Pierrehas lost.”
From the picture you, Rico’s a physical specimen. A specimen who dominates his opponents. Rico can’t do much more in the kickboxing world. Rico should switch to being a MMA fighter. Rico transferring to MMA, Rico will probably be the best standup boxer. Rico going to a world class MMA gym, Rico can definitely work on his gripping defense and ground game. If Rico is decent in those aspects of fighting the UFC or Bellator Heavyweight division is in trouble.
Finally the arrival of Ben Askren, I can’t wait for Askren to fight Robbie Lawler. All because of Joe Rogan, Askren is in the UFC. Askren without a doubt, Askren is one of the best wrestlers in the UFC and will dominate his opponents. The welterweight division is in trouble because of Askren. I believe Ben will be a star soon, Ben has the marketing checklist to make him a star. Another star in the making is Zabit Magomedsharipov who will be a future UFC featherweight champion. Zabit is facing Jeremy Stephens. A test for Zabit which will be a fascinating to watch. Lastly Johnny Walked a light heavyweight future star whose fighting Misha Cirkunov. Walker gives some new blood to the light heavyweight division.
I’m so excited for UFC 235, Counting down the days till it arrives. A lot of fights to watch and the debut of Ben Askren. Lastly if you watch UFC 235 don’t illegally stream it, Pay 65 dollars because your basically stealing money from Jon Jones, Anthony Smith, Woodley and Usman… But that’s for another blog.
It was truly an honor to watch GSP fight. Watching a true artist perform at the highest level. If you want to create the perfect MMA fighter, You’ll create GSP. GSP is an all- around fighter where other fighters are great at one style. The title of the blog is “GSP, The Greatest MMA fighter Retires.” George St Pierre is the greatest MMA fighter of all time, He beat the best such as BJ Penn, Matt Hughes and Nick Diaz. He never dodged any fighters or took any steroids. Ariel Helwani the top MMA journalist states “George St Pierre is the greatest of all time.”
GSP is a two division weight champion, He can back after a four year layoff and won the Middleweight title by beating Michael Bisping. I ordered the PPV for the GSP return and was amazed by how incredible GSP looked. That showed GSP is the greatest. I wish that wasn’t the final fight of his career, I wish he fought Khabib in his next fight but it will never happen. Overall even without the Khabib fight, His record and who he fought speaks for itself. GSP is the perfect fighter and the fighter to represent the sport. Once again it was truly an honor to watch GSP’s career.
Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson is a fight fans want to see. Hopefully the 5th time we see this happen because both men are at the top of there game. Tony Ferguson is an all around fighter with a 11 fight win streak, Tony Ferguson will give Khabib the most trouble. I’d love to see this fight happen and see if Khabib actually has competition. Khabib is just a mauler, 27-0 record. Brendan Schaub is a regular guest and he knows people at AKA which is one of the best MMA gyms in the world, Khabib wrestled Ed Ruth a Penn State All American wrestler and Khabib destroyed Ed Ruth which is crazy!! Khabib is one of my favorite fighters to watch. I hope this fight happens it will be a ppv success for the UFC.
George ST. Pierre vs Khabib
GSP one of the greatest fighters of all time, All around fighter. He is the perfect example of what a fighter should be, Doesn’t trash talk just goes inside the octagon and beats every opponent he faces. There’s nothing bad about this man. GSP is getting up there in age and only has a fight or two left in him. GSP wants to fight the best right now and make the most money ever in his MMA career. The man he should fight is Khabib because Khabib needs a challenge, That would be a interesting matchup for him. Khabib is a huge star, Dana can definitely promote the hell out of this fight! Please Dana make this fight happen.

Cain Velasquez has returned to relinquish his throne as the best Heavyweight of all time. Cain is a Mexican Silverback lol but it’s true he’s very talented fighter and a two time Heavyweight Champion. He beat Junior Dos Santos twice and Beat Antonio Silva twice. Stipe Miocic took over the Heavyweight reign being a three time defending Heavyweight champion. Stipe and Cain Velasquez would be a fight for the ages two gladiators stepping in the cage
Lance Palmer, Professional Fighters League 2019 Featherweight Champion, World Series of Fighting Featherweight Champion is the #1 Fighter on the PFL roster. Palmer age 32, 21-3 record with wins over world class fighters such as Andre Harrison, Max Coga, and Steven Siler time for Palmer to sign with the UFC.
Palmer today will fight Alex Gilpin for the PFL 2019 Featherweight Title and the 1 million dollar prize. After winning the title, Palmer, His family, Coaches and manager should decide if they want to leave the PFL and sign with the UFC.
Talent between the UFC and PFL is not even close but Palmer definitely can compete in the Featherweight division, Similar to Chad Mendes style of fighter. Palmer can beat top 15 Featherweights and depending on the matchup can win the UFC Featherweight Title. Love to see Palmer sign with the UFC.

Roberto “Robocop” Soldic might be one of the best Welterweights to not fight in the UFC or Bellator. Soldic fights for KSW, Top European promotion. He’s the KSW Welterweight champion at 24 years old. Defending the belt three times, Time to shop around the free agent market.
Used to be sign with the UFC and nobody else because of the lack of options but as of late there’s a Bellator ran by Scott Coker, Professional Fighters League and One Championship which I believe is the 2nd best promotion. Soldic can sign with any of the 4 promotions and become a Welterweight Champion and European Star.
Soldic most impressive win of his career is a win over Driscus Du Plessis. A world class MMA fighter, Eventually will fight for the UFC, Bellator, or One Championship.
“For me, KSW is good; I really like KSW,” Soldic said. “I think I’ll stay here for a long time, so I don’t really think about the UFC, I just think about KSW. They take care of me and they give me support. I’m champion here, I enjoy it here and we’ll see what the future brings.”
Soldic enjoys fighting for KSW, Doesn’t see himself leaving and just be a star for KSW but when offers start coming and the oppurtunity to win bigger welterweight title, Believe he’ll the take offer from the UFC, Bellator, One Championship or PFL.
