Garcia was realeased last week with several other fighters from the UFC. But he has already made one change, joining Duane Ludwig in California at Team Alpha Male. He previously worked with Greg Jackson in New Mexico.
This had to happen for me to make some type of change. Of course, I’ve got my cousin, Duane Ludwig, out there with Team Alpha Male, and he’s been texting me like crazy. He’s like, ‘Hey man, the problem is that guys can take you down and hold you down. I’ve got a room full of people that can take you down and hold you down. You need to get up here and do what you’ve got to do to get back to the UFC.’ Greg (Jackson) agreed. He said, ‘Yeah, let’s send you out there for a little while and see how that fits. Maybe do half your camp up there and half your camp down here, and we’ll figure it out.’
Garcia said that with the issues that exhist between the UFC and Bellator MMA, this for him makes it not an option. He is hoping to work quickly back to the Octagon.
The organizations that seem to be the right ones for me are Legacy, WSOF or ONE FC; something that won’t try to bind me into a long contract. I want to go omewhere that will give me a couple fights and then see what happens.
So what cage will we see Garcia walk into next? And will this termination from the UFC really change for him?
