Damacio Page saw his UFC dream end following three straight losses for them. That release was in July 2012 and Page vowed to return to the UFC within the year. Two months shy of that promise and Page hasn’t seen any action since being released and blames it on his former manager.
“My projected goal was to fight three or four times and be back in the UFC by July,” said Page to MMA Junkie. “My ex-manager didn’t live up to my expectations and I had to take matters into my own hands. I let him go, and I actually went and negotiated my own contracts. I made a deal on my own because I wanted to fight.”
Following a 3-2 run out of the WEC, Page joined the UFC. He was submitted by Brian Bowles, Brad Pickett and Alex Caceres, with each fight not going past the second round.
He meets Patrick Ybarra in his return to the sport at Legacy FC 20.
The event comes from the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, TX. It’s May 31 and can be seen on AXS TV.
