John Howard is so desperate for another run in the UFC, that the Boston native is willing to compete on the upcoming UFC on FS1 1 card for free. It comes from his home city.
Since the UFC released him in the summer of 2011, the welterweight took his fifth straight win in April. The last four wins have been by knockout and Howard’s intentions seem pretty clear.
“I might piss some people off, but I want to fight for the [Ultimate Fighting Championships],” said Howard to MMA Fighting. “I’ll fight for free on the Boston card.”
Howard is the current CES middleweight champion with three title defenses.
The Boston card is August 17 and is filling up quickly.
