    I remember hearing that the UFC had signed Adam Khaliev one or two months back but haven't seen or heard anything else about it since.

    For those who don't know, Khaliev is the YouTube famous "Tornado kick" guy. He's got a background in daidojuku kudo, a mix of judo and karate. It's basically MMA with a gi. I was really excited to see him debut, the guy is insane on the feet. Lots of cool kicks, good hands, seems well versed on the ground.

    Anyways, does anyone have any info?

    I dont think so. I've never seen a reliable source reporting it.

    No they didn't, it was nonsense that went on for pages without a single source being given.

    Seen the video but didn't know the guys name, so thanks for that. I was hoping it would be the suplex guy from the tuf card.
