And Another One… UFC Loses Top Contender Top Free Agent Market

The UFC has lost another warrior as featherweight Thiago Tavares has stepped away from the octagon.

The MMA Movement recently posted to Instagram, “Thiago Tavares signed in ACB.”

Tavares has not fought inside the octagon since his loss to Doo Ho Choi at TUF 23 finale in July.

With a 21-7 record, the featherweight is most recently riding a victory at Aspera FC 49.

Now, the fighter will be contracted with the Absolute Championship Berkut promotion.
