Tarec Saffiedine (13-3) is in the main event of the final Strikeforce show and challenging for the welterweight title, but beyond that he doesn’t what his future holds. Not knowing what’s next, is just how Saffiedine likes it.
“I think a win is always better for the next step in whatever you do, but as far as the UFC, I haven’t been approached by them in any way,” said Saffiedine to MMA Junkie. “So I’m really just focused on winning the fight.”
Saffiedine said it’s been an amazing ride after leaving his home country of Belgium, where MMA is illegal, to making history as the final Strikeforce fight.
In 2010, Saffiedine started with Strikeforce as part of the promotions challenge series before moving up to the main card in late 2011. He is 5-1 under the Strikeforce name and has won his last three fights by decision against Scott Smith, Tyler Stinson and Roger Bowling.
