Escudero talking to Strikeforce, Bellator

by Steven Marrocco | source:

Escudero said the split with the UFC was amicable, and he has already begun dialogue with other prominent MMA promotions.

"I'm going to take a week off, so I'm not rushing into anything," he said. "Then, after that, I'm going to decide where I'm going to go."

The fighter named Strikeforce and Bellator Fighting Championships among those who are interested in his services.

When asked if the UFC expressed interest in having him back after he picked up wins in other promotions, Escudero responded, "kind of like that."

Efrain has only missed weight once. The other time he got it in the 1 hour allotted time.And being Mexican is a damn good reason to keep him there for marketing purposes. Why do you think Dan Hardy got a title shot, cmon. But the fact is he is a very good fighter and should be in the ufc.

 best of luck to him. there's a lot great fighters at 155lbs in both organizations. he will be in the UFC, and if not the same poople will be watching him compete elsewhere. the keyboard warriors are out of hand on this forum- so much negativity

Only the first year is guaranteed, the next 2 years are option years.

Can't believe he got cut. He only lost 2 fights to 2 undefeated fighters.
