Che Mills, who was dropped from the UFC roster as a welterweight, just fought at Cage Warriors 55 for the first time since his release from the organization, where he failed to make weight and the bout was made a non title fight. Mills came up short, going down by TKO in round three.
Though Mills hasn’t found much success at 170, the CWFC British striker is making plans to go up a weight class to try his luck in the middleweight division.
After competing as a welterweight for ten years, Mills said in a recent interview that he’s movin’ on up because of cardio issues. Nearly all of his wins are in the first round without breaking a sweat.
Mills’ TKO loss to Rory MacDonald is actually his only recorded loss in the UFC, despite performing poorly against Matt Riddle, where his unanimous decision loss was overturned due to his opponent’s failed post-fight drug test.
