UFC happy to sign #1 ranked Japanese featherweight, Hatsu Hioki at any time

The UFC have made it very clear that they are looking to sign Sengoku featherweight champion, Hatsu Hioki over the next year, saying they would love to have the top rated Japanese fighter.

UFC matchmaker, Sean Shelby, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“If Hioki wanted in the UFC, I would be happy to have him. Because of the way the merger is, my roster is full. I wasn’t looking to add talent until June or July, but I would make room for Hioki at any point.”
