He is officially UFC bound.

Renzo via neck stomp, arm bar, and general badassery. He will finally fight at 170.

Here's what UFC does guys....

UFC signs a fighter to six fights and pays big money. But the small fine print states if the figher loses, they are allowed to cut them and get rid of them or in fact, cut them and resign them with lower money.

Basically the contracts are SOOO designed to profit Zuffa. they'll sign Renzo for big dollars, match him with a top new guy that will beat him, thus getting rid of Renzo, cutting him.

Which sounds fair to me. If he wins he stays and earns a ton of cash. So he better win or at least put asses on seats. Put Legacy on Spike and those asses will be in those seats.

In Pride, they kept you if you had honor. In UFC, they keep you if you are cheap and exciting.

 damn, great news. I fear he will be used to put people over rather than be looked at as a viable contender though.

Minotauro first UFC fight = Heath Herring

Anderson Silva first UFC fight = Chris Leben

Cro Cop first UFC fight = Eddie Sanchez

Quinton Jackson first UFC fight = Marvin Eastman

You guys really think Renzo will debut against a top ranked fighter or legend ? ? ? Hell no! We have to educate the TUF noobs first. Then we have to see Renzo lose. THEN we can get a dream Renzo match up against Hughes or someone else.

I'm telling you Legacy as mini series on Spike with all the Pride footage put in as the UFC own it and the TUF noobs will be freaking the fuck out. Riots, arm breaks, charisma, history, REnzo brings it all.

The point of signing Renzo is to keep him out of Strikeforce.
