According to MMAJunkie, former PRIDE FC fighter and Denis Kang (31-10-1) has signed a four fight deal with the UFC. Kang will be a much needed breath of fresh air for the UFC middleweight division, which has been hit hard by Anderson Silva.

Kang hold wins over fighters like Marvin Eastman, Akihiro Gono, Murilo “Ninja” Rua and Andrei Semenov. Expect Kang to make his UFC debut early in 2009.

American Top Team’s General Manager Richie Guerriero:

“I just think timing wise, it was a good point in his career (to sign with the UFC) … He’s always had his eye on the UFC, but with his commitment to SpiritMC, and with him fighting for PRIDE at the time, it just never happened.”

“With the UFC being what it is, I think Denis knew it was a good time to get some exposure here in America,”
