Rodney “Sho Nuff the Master” Wallace has signed a new three-fight contract with Canada’s Maximum Fighting Championship according to a press release sent out by the organization on Sunday.

Wallace (10-3) got back to his winning ways on a short notice light heavyweight bout against David Heath at “MFC 27: Breaking Point” last month. After losing three straight unanimous decisions during his 2009 UFC stint, Wallace got on the right side of a unanimous decision in his MFC debut against Heath.

Wallace spoke about his intentions with the MFC:

“My aim is to become the champ. I’m excited to be part of the Maximum Fighting Championship. I hope to become a fan favorite by being a real crowd pleaser.”

Wallace knows a thing or two about pleasing the crowd. He won “Fight of the Night” honors along with his opponent Jared Hammen at UFC 111 in August and took home an extra $65,000 for his efforts.

Although not finalized, Wallace could face MFC veteran and title contender Dwayne “D-Bomb” Lewis (13-6) on the promotion’s February card. Commenting on the potential match-up, Wallace simply said,

“That fight would be very cool. He’s tough … I like ’em that way.”

Fighting out of Charlotte, N.C., the 29-year-old Wallace is a very strong and athletic fighter. He is a former running back for Catawba College, an NCAA Division II school in North Carolina, where he held the record for all-time leading rusher.

Wallace has been fighting professionally since 2008 and won his first eight bouts before signing with the UFC last year.
