    Vinny Magalhães back to the UFC?

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Tue Oct 18, 2011 1:31 pm

    He is pissed off with M-1 after seeing M-1 bosses cheering his opponent again and told them they can take their belt back. He tweeted Dana White and asked how maby wins before he comes back to the UFC!

    I really think they need to sign him, he has a win over Soszynski who is still in the UFC and he has finished every fight he has been in including 4 wins this year, 2 by KO showing how much more rounded he has become.

    UFC have much worse Lhw's on their roster and id love to see them give Vinny another chance. I say see how he matches up with Gustafsson or the likes.

    I'll be honest I think he would be a better pick up for Bellator than the UFC I mean Bellator are in dire need of LHW's.

    You dont think he is UFC material? He got to the Final of TUF, there are plenty of fighters on the UFC roster who didnt even get that far! He is a better grappler than anyone in his weight class in the UFC and now is dishing out Headkick KOs and punching people out! He was mostly just a grappler on TUF but he is a lot more rounded now



    Someone like Rich Franklin would be an Ideal opponent to see if he has improved.

    Theres fuck all for him in Bellator at Lhw, they would struggle to find him more that 1 matchup.

    His standup has vastly improved so he deserves a shot. He used to be a bit like Brock in that he didn't like getting hit in the face but he seems to have come through it, and his grappling is off the charts. I wouldn't mind seeing him in the UFC.

    I think he'd do well in the UFC now. I'd back him against Bader in a rematch.

    Would like to see him back. He's a cool guy and if his stand-up is improved then he'll be a force because he is incredible on the mat!

    Deserves a shot but don't see him going far with his chin and gas tank.

    Read that he is in negotiations with the UFC. Hopefully he gets a shot.

    I cant see him going anywhere else, there really isnt anywhere for him to be now he burned his bridges with M-1 (or at least stood up to them) I reckon we see him back, Maby against someone like Vera or Bonnar would work.
