UFC veteran Thales Leites (14-3) has now signed to Canadian MMA organization Maximum Fighting Championship. MFC promoter Mark Pavelich made the announcement on TapouT Radio that Leites has signed a deal with them, and is scheduled to debut at MFC 23 on December 4th.
Mark Pavelich stated, “He lost a split decision that many people thought he won, and the UFC cut him. I think he’s mad now.
Thales Leites will enter MFC coming off back-to-back losses to Anderson Silva and Alessio Sakara. Traditionally there would be no shame in losing to either fighter, but Leites was very lackluster in both bouts. If Leites wants to get back in the good graces of mma fans, he will need to put on an exciting fight or at least a spectacular submission that the brazilian jiu jitsu black belt is known for.
Now, Leites will be apart of a stacked middleweight division that includes the likes of Jason MacDonald, Travis Lutter, Dean Lister, and Trevor Prangley.
