    I've got a thread for quiet releases, so I figured I may as well have one for quiet signings.

    Steve Garcia

    Featherweight
    Record - 11-3
    Age - 27

    Contender Series vet Garcia gets a call to replace Alex Munoz up a weight class against Luis Pena. He looked good in his Contender Series fight against Desmond Torres at Bantamweight but missed weight. I watched his last LFA fight against Jose Mariscal from January at Featherweight and he looked good but missed weight again. Surely he can't miss weight as a Lightweight!

    Can't believe you guys haven't heard of 1st ranked of 196 active US Southwest Pro Featherweights Steve Garcia.

    I am glad these Contender Series guys are getting chance to showcase, but they need to be fighting other people of the same calibur and experience. Not seasoned vets.

    What UFC vet wants to face a dude who won a fight on DWTNCS?? Its a a lose/lose.

    Look at Tim Means. Highly respected vet who takes on a series contender fighter and gets KO'd.

    It's just a late replacement fight. If Pena wanted to stay on the card I think something like this was the only option. The guy he was due to face was a debuting Contender Series/Looking for a fight guy anyway.

    EDIT - Plus the LFA is basically the UFC minor league at this point.

    Garcia is actually pretty good. Pena will probably be too much for him, but he's a fun addition to the FW division. Good striker, action fighter.

    Didn't think they would sign him after the weight miss, but I guess they couldn't find anyone else on short notice.

    He has a pretty entertaining fight style. If he was a blanketing wrestler, I doubt they would have signed him, especially as he's missed weight again since the Contender Series.

    Bellator has better featherweight prospect in Aaron Pico.
