Sengoku middleweight champion, Jorge Santiago wants a return to UFC or Strikeforce

Former UFC middleweight and current Sengoku middleweight champion Jorge Santiago speaks after parting ways with Japanese promotion, Sengoku and it looks like the Brazilian is anxious to return to the U.S to compete and show the American fans what they’ve been missing.

Santiago, speaking via MMAJunkie.com, said:

“I’m dying to come back. There’s so many guys that are putting on a good show in Strikeforce and the UFC. Hopefully this year I’ll come back to the U.S. and do a good job here, too.”

“They’ve called me. They put in an offer, but we’re still talking. We have some contract issues, but hopefully in three more months or so, some good news will pop up. That’s what I’m trying to do: go inside the ring, perform 100 percent and leave everything inside of the ring.”
