Looked it up after I posted. He said in an interview with BE he was injured for 2012-2013 but doesn't give the type of injury. Also says he's been training with Alliance.

It's unfortunate for him that Jim Alers is really fucking good.

Tough tough debut. Jim Alers is excellent.

Wrong card, he's on 39, abu dabi card. he was definitly signed just for the area of where the card is taking place. Man ufc is just signing these local guys left and right.

Partly true. A lot of reporters had him as one of the best featherweight prospects out there in 2011 before he got hurt. It's not like they went out and signed another Royston Wee with like 2 pro fights. Besides, everyone starts out local.
