Vinny Magalhaes Should Be Signed By The UFC


by Jamie McAllister:
Chugging along with as much focus and determination as the #RallyForMarkHunt train is also a campaign on Twitter by the dedicated followers of Vinny Magalhaes to get the BBJ specialist back to where he belongs in the UFC via numerous tweets to the UFC brass!

The BJJ specialist who was a finalist on the Ultimate Fighter show losing via knockout to Ryan Bader in the first round. After this loss Magalhaes lost his next bout in the UFC and was promptly cut. Ever since then Magalhaes has won 7 of 8 fights and achieved a finish in all of his wins via submission as well as some TKO and in his last bout scored an impressive head kick knockout over Mikhail Zayats defending his M1 Light Heavyweight Championship just in case you have not seen it here is the fight video (I advanced it to the knockout but feel free to watch the full fight)

Also he is the current ADCC Champion earning a gold medal in the Heavyweight Division beating Fabricio Werdum in the finals. And to top that all off he has an unbreakable arm !

On a more serious note I personally do not think there is anyone more deserving of a UFC recall than Vinny Magalhaes his recent record speaks for itself in terms of finishing winning 7 of 8 in conjunction with the style he has finished some of the fights in !
