The Maximum Fighting Championship has announced that it has signed undefeated lightweight Tyrone Glover to a four fight contract. The 31 year-old-fighter could make his promotional debut at MFC 28 in February; however, no date has been set.
“From a performance standpoint, this is the perfect time for me,” Glover (5-0) was quoted saying in a press release from the promotion. “I wanted to get involved with a good promotion and I’ve done that by coming to the MFC.”
“And I have the resources now for my training and my support system. Having those two things means I can come into the MFC and establish myself in the lightweight division and be a force to be reckoned with.”
Glover recently returned to fighting, after taking a five year hiatus from the sport to pursue his law degree, and submitted Nick Buschman at a Fight to Win event in November. Glover’s last bout prior had taken place in September, 2005, when he worked his way to a majority decision win over UFC vet Din Thomas at Deep 20.
“I think my talents lie in my well-rounded game plan,” added Glover, who began his own legal practice.
“I think I’ve got the tools to put a guy down and I’ve got the tools to stand with him. It may not be my pedigree like wrestling is, but I’m confident I can use my stand up. My real strength is being able to put together a cohesive MMA game plan that I can use to beat anybody.”
