UFC BW isn't really stacked so it could be a good add.

BTW I prefer to c him defending thye belt at least 1 time and pass thru another org like WSOF

Why not, they have certainly signed much, much worse fighters in the past. Might as well sign a guy that is 17 - 0 - 0 with pretty damn decent striking.

He needs to be in the UFC and good thing he already told Bellator he doesnt want to fight for them.

"I hope to reach my dream, which is to fight in the UFC. My Legacy contract says they wonít hold me if I get an offer from the UFC.Ē

And thatís why he hasnít taken the bait when heís gotten calls from elsewhere. For Almeida, it appears to be UFC or bust.

ďIíve had various offers from Bellator and WSOF, but Iím holding out for the UFC, which is my dream,Ē he said. ďI think that earning the Legacy title will be a great step in that direction. Iím only 22 and Iím willing to wait until the right time, so when I do enter the UFC, I can make a mark."

If your dream is to ultimately fight in the UFC then it's better to fight in places like Legacy, RFA, MFC, Cage Warriors or Tachi until you get the call from UFC. They won't lock you up long term. I doubt that fighting in the main event of a Legacy event pays that much less then the opening fight of the main card in Bellator does.
