The UFC Heavyweight Division is getting a new threat as undefeated heavyweight Carlos Felipe has been re-signed by the UFC.
It was Felipe who announced the signing via Instagram:
Aprenda a confiar no processo...2 anos atrás vi meu sonho "indo embora", mas nunca me abati, nunca pensei em nem sequer mostrar fraqueza... nunca deixei de acreditar em minha capacidade e na de minha equipe...sabia que era questão de tempo...cá estamos nós de novo...mais maduro, mais preparado, melhor em todos os aspectos e o muito pior para meus adversários!! Contratado outra vez pelo UFC...vamos pra cima!!! @leopateira @edilsonteixeira @lifeartesmarciais
Here is a translation of what Felipe wrote, provided by Google Translate:
“Learn to trust the process ... 2 years ago I saw my dream "going away", but it never hit me, I never thought I did not even show weakness ... I never stopped believing in my capacity and in my team ... knew that it was a matter of time ... here we are again ... more mature, more prepared, better in all aspects and the worse for my opponents !! Hired again by the UFC ... let's go up !!!”
Felipe had originally signed with the UFC in 2017, but was released by the promotion after failing a United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) issued drug test before his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night Sao Paulo. Felipe’s two year suspension ends on September 18 of this year and is going to be free to compete again after that date.
