    He got released from the UFC after 3 losses in a row. Does anyone know If he intends to continue, where he might sign If so?

    Well he's still training (you same see some pictures in his IG)
    I thought Coker would call him inmediately though

    Rizin would be best option for a few reasons.

    I would like to see him in the GP. Probably won't make it that far if he looks like he did in the UFC, but who knows. He might go full juice mode and look like a beast.

    I think its mental weaknes he has all the tools but folds easily and gives up if its not going his way.

    Didn't say he wouldn't take him down....I was thinking of ONE division and he would be fun to add to it since there isn't much there is all.

    Well. I agree with ya that he would make fireworks in ONE. Not only in the LHW division but also in the HW (Im from Brazil and ive met some dudes that met him. They say that he's huge and have some trouble cutting weight).
    By that we can basically say that he would do pretty well against strikers at ONE, like Mizuno or, if he goes to the HW, Vera. But besides that, i really don't think he would do well against Roger Gracie or anyone using good wrestling (unless he knocks him out with a one punch ko or something).

    Thats what I'm saying, Rizin is a good option for many reasons.

    Doubt Bellator would want him given how he looked and fact he's not a big name.

    WSOF would be decent option if he wanted to stick around in US, they could use him.

    He looked bad way before usada.

    It's crazy how completely different he looked in UFC compared to SF. He was one scary mofo SF and in the UFC he looked so timid and afraid to engage.

    Like he did against King Mo and Yoel Romero. Gracie however is way better than those guys at submissions. hasn't been subbed in his career first time for everything. Him against Mizuno or Vera woul be sweet.

    WTF happened to him though? Was he always like that, or did someone break him really bad in a fight?

    Don't know. He was known as the wrestler hunter due to his fights against Mo and Romero and then loses thrice against them...

    USADA killed him.

    Feijao is a good fighter but he is past his prime both physically and mentally. I think he could regain some momentum with lots of juice tho.

    Guy is 36 years old... I dont know if we are going to see him again.

    I really was hoping that bellator would sign him back when he first got released and im surprised when they didnt,basicly just due to the fact of just being a former strikeforce champ and how good he looked in sf admitedly i hadnt seen any of calvacantes ufc losses only the igor fight the loss to cummins looks pretty bad though honestly

    Givin Chinzo going to Btor, and he used to be Coker SF, thinking Btor might pick him up...........

    But Rizin's Ramen Check Levels might be better

    If WSOF was serious about strengthening that division they would sign him. A fight with Heun or Holder would actually be pretty fun.
