Magalhaes Suggests M-1 Favortism, Tells Them They Can Have Belt Back

After scoring a submission victory over Viktor Nemkov to win the M-1 Global Light Heavyweight Vinny Magalhaes then went on to defend the M-1 Global Light Heavyweight Championship with a third round TKO victory over Mikhail Zayats, last Saturday.

One might assume that being the champion of a promotion would have that man flying high but for Magalhaes, that just isn't the case.

Magalhaes, who is a former TUF finalist from season 8, took to his facebook account after watching the bout and voiced his displeasure for the promotion:

“After rewatching the whole fight, I just realized that every time i fought for M-1 against a Russian fighter, i was the hand picked guy… i mean, i am assuming that after seeing one of the M-1 directors rooting for my opponent every time he'd hit me, but not having any reaction when i'd hit him nor when dropped him. Thanks M-1, i appreciate your business, you can have your belt back.”

Magalhaes followed that up with a tweet to UFC President Dana White asking how many more win he needed to earn a shot back in the UFC.
