French fighter David Baron, who submitted Hayato “Mach” Sakurai in his last bout in May, has signed with the UFC according to The Fight Network.

Baron (15-2) submitted Sakurai (32-8-2) via first round guillotine choke at a May Shooto event.

Yeah, it's actually about a week old. Someone posted it in the wrong forum and didn't post a link, but his signing was brought up. Link

IF UFC signs Fickett and Sheilds they will have the best welterweight division of all time...it would supass the LHW division. (Heck if they can get Sakurai, The Goat, and Diaz...even better)
