Vinny Magalhães is vacating M1 Global Title

LordZardoz2011-10-25 04:19:33 +0000 #1
I just saw this on todays Inside MMA.

On the October 14th M1 Global show, Vinny Magalhães won the fight by impressive head kick to ground and pound for a TKO. However, it seems that the director of M1 Global was pretty much openly rooting for the opponent, Mikhail Zayats of Russia.

As a result, he told M1 that either the director goes or he walks, and it looks like he is walking.

I think with his ADCC run this year he deserves another run in the UFC. Why not?

Vinny did win his title match with M1 Global on Friday off of a head kick followed by ground and pound. I would say that his striking is probably been improving.

He is also coming off of a win at the Abu Dhabi grappling championships. I would say he either needs to strike, or he needs to go the Jake Shields route and learn some stronger wrestling. Either way the Light Heavyweight division could use a few fighters with high level submissions. The current top 10 is very heavily biased towards striking and ground and pound.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. The guy is a beast on the ground.

On a side note, his head kick in his title fight last weekend was hilariously flukey. You gotta check it out.
