MMA Quick Quote: If you’re not in the UFC, automatically you’re a can

Grappling phenom Vinny Magalhaes keeps on winning. Is it only a matter of time before we see him back in the UFC?

"As a goal for me, I want to go back to the UFC. I feel like that’s where the best fighters are, and I feel like I’ve groomed my skills to compete against the best guys. What’s happening right now, I’m beating people and it’s like people are saying you’re beating cans, which is not true. But the fans act that way, if you’re not in the UFC automatically you’re a can, that’s just how people see you. I want people to recognize when I beat people, I’m not beating cans."

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season eight runner-up Vinny Magalhaes (via MMA Weekly) has his eyes on the prize, specifically another shot in the UFC. "Pezao" was bounced from the world's largest fight promotion after posting back-to-back losses to Ryan Bader and Eliot Marshall back in 2008. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu wizard contends he's improved all aspects of his offense and moved away from the grappling mentality inside the cage. After five straight wins in International competition, are you ready to give Magalhaes another look?
