Recently released UFC middleweight fighter Denis Kang (32-12-1, 2 NC) has signed a two-fight deal with Canadian organization Warrior-1 MMA. Jack Bateman, the president of W-1 MMA, confirmed the news with TopMMANews.com.
According to the report, Kang will headline headline "W-1: Bad Blood" on March 20th at the Centre Pierre Charbonneau in Montreal, QC, Canada.
The 32-year-old was released from the UFC following his loss to Michael Bisping in November. The former PRIDE fighter went 1-2 inside Octagon. Since going undefeated in 23 straight fights, Kang has lost 5 of his last 9 fights.
