Report: Max Griffin Signs New Deal With The UFC

A newly signed Griffin would like to see his next bout take place at UFC Fight Night Sacramento.

“There’s only two fights that have been announced,” Griffin told MMA Junkie. “We have a sitdown with (UFC matchmaker) Sean Shelby this week to talk him into letting me fight. I’ve been wanting to fight at home for a long time, and it’s perfect timing.”

Griffin currently holds a 3-4-0 record under the UFC banner, with those wins coming against Erick Montano, Mike Perry and Zelim Imadaev.

The fighter would like to face a big name opponent in Sacramento, but is up for anything, as long as it happens at UFC Fight Night Sacramento.

“Just good guys,” he said. “I feel like the guys I’ve been fighting are some of the toughest guys the UFC has. Straight up as far as toughness and endurance. The guys can’t all be this tough. I’m looking forward to someone good. They like it when you win those pay-per-view fights. You usually get a good push after you’re victorious on pay-per-view. I’m anticipating something big.”

UFC Fight Night Sacramento takes place on Saturday, July 13 from the Golden 1 Center in Sacrmento, California with no main event announced at this time. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on ESPN+.
