War Machine has been out of action for 16 months due to time behind bars and an injury. He’s now ready to go and thinks Bellator will have him back during the Summer Series.
“I want to fight now because I’m a fighter and I need money and I don’t give a s—,” said Machine on MMA Prime. “They want me to wait and make sure I don’t have a bad performance with a loss. Hopefully I’ll be back before the summer.”
He was to have competed in the Season 6 welterweight tournament before he was sentenced to a year in prison for assault. His return was set for Bellator 85, to kickoff the main card as the fans voted him to fight Paul Daley. Before the fight could happen, Machine tore his ACL and broke his fibula.
He’s currently in shape and will be the same fighter once he returns.
No date or opponent is known at this time.
