Kalib Starnes will be coming to Winnipeg to headline Ultimate Cage Wars 16: Canada vs Hawaii, according to Gabriel Santos. Santos, the matchmaker for the Winnipeg-based UCW promotion, announced the bout on his Facebook profile.

Starnes is infamously known for his “Running Man” fight at UFC 83 against Nate Quarry. In the bout, Starnes failed to engage Quarry and Quarry ended up mocking the Canadian fighter near the end of the bout. Starnes was unceremoniously released by the UFC following the bout.

Now Kalib Starnes is looking to continue to rebuild his reputation as a fighter. MMAWeekly reports that sources close to the bout state that his opponent will be Bret “The Angry Hick” Bergmark. Bergmark has a 5-1 MMA record and is trained by Cesar Gracie and has had several fights in the Zuffa-owned WEC.

Link is from April, but figured I'd post it as new news since I'm sure 99.9% of MMA fans don't know he's fighting this Friday.

Hope Kalib can pick up the W and work his way back towards the big show. I always enjoyed watching him fight. Apart from the Quarry fight obviously.

As a headliner because he was in the UFC. Smaller orgs. love guys who have been in the big shows. I for one don't like him and haven't picked him for a fight once... cocky personalities piss me off.

I wouldn't watch this fight if the UCW paid me to.

If Kalib will run I might be interested. And don't forget the monkey.
