Top 10 featherweight Rafael Assuncao, who is currently on a four fight winning streak, has been granted a release from his contract with the AFL and is seeking to return to action in April.
Assuncao has his sights set on either the WEC or Bellator Fighting Championships, but one thing is certain – Rafael is looking to fight in April.
“With Bellator I get a chance to quickly get three fights under my belt – and possibly a lot of money in those three fights – which is very appealing,” Assuncao said. “On the other hand, the WEC has treated me very well. I’ve got a little bit of a relationship with the matchmakers there. And it’s a Zuffa LLC company, so there’s security there.”
