(Well, he seems to be better than Kimbo, at least.)
In an attempt to add another warm body to its heavyweight division — and another recognizable fighter to its UK cards — the UFC has reportedly signed heavyweight Neil "Goliath" Grove to a four-fight contract. The 6’6" South African native compiled a 6-1 record fighting in Cage Rage and the UK MMA Championship, with all his wins coming by KO/TKO. He holds notable victories over James Thompson (the 10-second beating shown above) and Robert "Buzz" Berry (twice). He also has a unique martial arts pedigree:
Judging from some of his fights, you’d think he was a third-degree black belt in Drunken British Soccer Hooligan. But it works for him, and that’s cool with us. Grove is looking to debut at UFC 95 (February 21st; London, England), and has his eye on Mustapha Al-Turk, the man who held Cage Rage’s British heavyweight title before the organization shut down. Al-Turk will first face Cheick Kongo at UFC 92 (December 27th, Las Vegas).
