Dana White Says He’s “Done” With Free Agent Misha Cirkunov
By FCF Staff
Although Misha Cirkunov has won eight straight fights, is widely considered to be one of the more promising light-heavyweights in the game, Dana White claims he’s “done” with the free agent.
Cirkunov entered free agency following his submission win over Nikita Krylov in December. During his run with the UFC, the 29 year-old went 4-0. Recently White spoke with TSN, and while doing so, he said this about Cirkunov (quote via MMA Junkie):
“I met with Misha and his wife, and good people and everything else, but he ended up really flaking out on the deal,” White said. “So I’m not interested. I’m done. He knows I’m done. I made it very clear I’m done.”
“You’ll see him somewhere,” White added. “It just won’t be here.”
Recently White also reported that the promotion wasn’t going to match what Ryan Bader has been offered by Bellator. Bader was a top five ranked 205’er in the UFC before he entered free agency.
