Jorge Santiago Confirms UFC Talks, But Says No Deal Is Official Yet

By Mike Chiappetta

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ — Free agent Jorge Santiago on Saturday night refuted reports that he has signed a contract with the UFC.

Santiago told MMA Fighting that he had not yet signed a contract with any promotion, but that he hoped to finalize a deal very soon. Santiago did confirm ongoing talks with the UFC.

Several MMA sites have reported that Santiago has agreed to a deal and will fight Brian Stann at UFC 130 in May, but he insisted that he has yet to ink his name to any contract.

“Maybe tomorrow,” he said with a smile.

Santiago was the reigning Sengoku middleweight champion when he asked for and was granted his release. He holds a record of 23-8 after winning 11 of his last 12 fights.
