IMHO they should sign him even if it costs them 75k/fight.
He would demand wayyy more than that. Quarter mill at the least

I think he takes good money with Glory + WSOF.

And like Baars is one of those top kickboxers that I hope they stay in kickboxing, that's their sport.

Crocop is the exception and even he couldn't get it done in the cage. the ring is a much easier arena for a striker against a grappler.
I agree with what you said but when I see guys like Junior Dos Santos who evolved pretty fast in the sport (started training MMA at 22 or something like that), I believe that Tyron has what it takes to compete in the UFC. Of course he would have to focus on it at 100% and let go kickboxing.

The UFC can't (or won't, rather) afford Tyrone Spong. He makes more money in a one night GLORY tournament than top UFC fighters do fighting 3x a year. The UFC would have to offer him 100k+ a fight for him to sign an exclusive contract.

After Spong's WSOF contract runs out, I expect him to sign with Bellator if he plans to continue MMA. He's already hyped up a fight with Rampage, and it could be put on PPV.
