(“Hi. My name’s Pee-Wee. I’m here for the orgy.”)
It looks like the UFC scooped up its second Sengoku Raiden Championship fighter in a week.
As we reported last week, the promotion’s middleweight champion Jorge Santiago walked away from the promotion in the hopes of signing with either the UFC or Strikeforce.
