After all the ink we gave to War Machine‘s deep thoughts about D.I.Y. asshole-plucking and bologna sex fantasies while in prison, it only seems fair that we should keep you updated on his actual MMA career. (Ed. note: zzzzzzz) The eccentric UFC veteran has been a free man since July, and his fall dance card is starting to fill up.
On Saturday, October 15th, War Machine will headline Chicago Cagefighting Championship 4, which goes down at the Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, IL. His opponent will be TUF 4 castmember and “local fan favorite” Gideon Ray, who hasn’t competed since last July. The card will also feature Carson Beebe, Josh Shockley, and Chico Camus. Tickets start at just $20.
But a bigger fight looms on the horizon…
Earlier today, a pair of twitter messages from Roger Huerta and PhuketTopTeam claimed that the UFC’s former Hispanic poster boy will be fighting War Machine on November 26th in Pharr, Texas, for an unspecified promotion. War Machine clarified that it wasn’t a done deal just yet: ”lol…rumors sure fly, Ive agreed to the fight but contracts havent been signed yet. I fight Gideon in Chicago first regardless.”
After two career-killing losses under the Bellator banner against Pat Curran and Eddie Alvarez, is a jump to welterweight against War Machine’s crazy ass really the best move for Huerta? That remains to be seen, but both fighters could use a big win right now to jump-start their careers. Fine, we’re interested.
One more thing: War Machine’s wife has a grenade neck-tattoo, just like him. Awwwww?
