    This seems like irresponsible match making.

    Not sure if I'd call him a legend but exciting as hell nonetheless. I remember him having a highly entertaining fight against Kingsbury

    Came here to ask that.

    Wasn't he signed with the UFC?

    There were rumours that he had but it was AGES ago and not even a murmur about a fight lined up. So some of us felt the rumours were probably false, which seems to be the case.

    I thought Chopper had an issue with USADA that prevented his UFC signing. I could be mistaken, but there was some strange thing that kept him off the roster. I'll go out on a limb and say that UAE Warriors probably doesn't pay even as much as a low-level UFC fighter makes.

    Im trying to agree with you at the same im thinking as Maldonado's manager.
    He could say he fought the best at the UFC and in the world (like Fedor's draw) and ask for a raise.
    Ofc, at the same time we need to consider we're living in a pandemic world and Maldonado hasn't fought for a while, is old and quite washed...

    Yeah...
    They're probably paying peanuts for both dudes.

    Last I heard he'd signed with BKB in the UK a few months back. Not heard anything since.

    Thank you for saying this; Fedor did not deserve to win that fight, but neither did Fabio.

    I think it was the best guy they could get at that notice, he barely broke a sweat doing it and needs to be in with much better competition.

    Chi in Glory was just lol. Beat some randoms, then got matched against better talent and suddenly the gloves Glory used somehow didn't fit his hands anymore.

    Glory also doesn't look to be done, just announced shows.

    Excellent news. Chi in Glory was what it was I would have liked to see more of a push but I do recall the glove issue now. His runs in Glory and ONE were both cut short for different reasons and I just wish it hadn’t went that way as a fight fan.
