Leonard Garcia is currently being wooed by two major organizations after his release from the UFC earlier this week, but it seems his heart is still with the sports leading promotion.
“The good offers have come from World Series of Fighting,” Garcia tells MMAfighting.com. “I believe Bellator made an offer, and I haven’t asked to hear it yet because my intentions are to come back to the UFC.”
A Former WEC fighter, Garcia left the UFC after recording just one win in six fights, but was well thought of by the promotion who valued his all-action brawling style that saw him claim two ‘Fight Of The night’ bonuses in the UFC.
His plan now is to try to get back to winning ways on the regional circuit and hopes that will be enough to get back in favor with the UFC brass.
“I need to go back to a small show and realize how good I had it, and really, really want it. That’s something I think I had lost, because now I have it. Now I’m looking for fights. Now I’m calling different people to train.”
That means that after a long time training at Jackson’s MMA, Garcia is finally moving on to train with the renowned Team Alpha Male camp, home to fighters like Urijah Faber, Chad Mendes and Joseph Benavidez which seems like a good decision.
