Owner of the popular “Jokers Wild Fighting Academy” in Lake Forest, Calif., current King of the Cage welterweight champ, So-Cal MMA legend, and original member of the Tapout crew, Mike “The Joker” Guymon has been offered a four-fight deal with the UFC .
Guymon announced the news in a forum post on the Underground on Friday:
I just got offered a 4 fight deal with the UFC!!!!!! I feel so blessed and thankful for all the people in my life. This has been the craziest year by far. This has taken me just over 10 years to accomplish. Through that time there have been countless people and sponsors that made it possible, I love you all.
I literally cried for 3 hours from sheer joy and the long road that I had traveled to this point. Thank you so much Joe Silva, Dana, Tim Katz, Dan Caldwell, And Chris from the UG that made this all happen.
I know that the 170 division is stacked and all fights will be tough in there, but I promise that I will be ready in all facets of the game to give everyone their monies worth – Win or Lose!!!!
