Curtis Blaydes open to UFC exit

Curtis Blaydes has not held back when talking about the UFC and has voiced his serious concern over his supposed mistreatment by his employers.

Standing at only 26 years of age, US-native, Curtis “Razor” Blaydes currently holds a 9-1-1 record with his most recent win coming over knockout expert and MMA legend, Mark Hunt.

After his impressive win over “The Super Samoan“, Blaydes saw the post-fight press conference as a chance to express his feelings regarding his current situation with the company.

When asked by journalists how he feels after his UFC 221 win, Curtis Blaydes had this to say.

“It feels great, I hope I start getting the respect I deserve. I hope I get in the UFC videogame… two of the guys I’ve already beat, Mark Hunt and Alexey Oleynik are both in the game and I’m not, so I feel like that’s a bit disrespectful.”


But prior to his decision win over Mark Hunt, Curtis Blaydes told MMAJunkie some possible future plans.

“If the UFC let me get to that fourth fight without a decent offer… I’ll listen to Bellator.”


Known as the UFC‘s biggest competitors, Bellator remains open to sniping big names from the UFC, with fighters such as Rory MacDonald, Lorenz Larkin and Roy Nelson all recently jumping ship.


Blaydes continued to elaborate on his interest in a move over to Bellator.

“They’ve been offering guys fat, fat contracts, and those heavyweights aren’t nearly as good as the ones in the UFC… So the enticement is there, lesser competition for more money.”


As Bellator remain capable of taking some of their competitors’ big talent, could we possibly see Heavyweight prospect, Curtis Blaydes, make the transition over to gain the money and respect he claims he deserves?
