It is also unknown at this time of the UFC is interested in signing the former welterweight champion, who holds a 13-8-0 record in the promotion.

The fighter captured the UFC Welterweight Title back at UFC 171 after getting a razor thin decision win over Robbie Lawler.

However, the champion would lose his gold in a rematch with Lawler at UFC 181 after another razor thin decision for the two.
