No problem! Just buy his belt on Ebay.
That's right, the Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) Champion, who continues his war of words with M-1 Global Director of Operations Evgeni Kogan, says he's done with the overseas promotion after they failed to give him a title defense while under contract.
That means he's got no reason to hold on to the strap and has offered it to the highest bidder, which as of Monday morning (May 14, 2012) is right around $2,600. Not bad for a guy that was one fight away from winning The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 8 Finale.
The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) black belt, who is also training Chael Sonnen in his spare time, is the winner of five straight, finishing all five of his opponents in the process en route to capturing M-1's 205-pound title. And that didn't stop him from packing on a few pounds to win the 99 kilogram division of the 2011 ADCC submission grappling world championships by defeating Fabricio Werdum.
Now you can own a piece of mixed martial arts (MMA) history for a few thousand bucks. Just don't be surprised if the M-1 mafia shows up at your house, asking to have it back.
