Although he was reportedly in talks with Strikeforce & Bellator shortly after his UFC release, Ultimate Fighter 8 winner Efrain Escudero announced today he's instead signed with Shine Fights. No date set for his debut, but based on the current plans for Shine Fights it might not be until early next year.

He would have gained a lot more exposure in Bellator IMO. And would have probably gained a huge fan base

Can't believe he didn't sign with strikeforce
He would have been on the main card everytime

Good luck for him
I still can't believe the ufc cut him.

Shine will test the type of figher he is. I'm surprised the UFC cut him.
Hope that at some point he moves over to Bellator and they have a Escudero .vs. Huerta slugfest!

Exactly what I was hoping for....with a win over Huerta he would be close to coming back into the UFC....in Strikeforce there are a couple of guys that would be good as well, JZ and maybe even The Punk.....all good match ups IMO....can't think of one good fight for him in Shine.

I think Efrain is ok fighter, but after his loss's, he does not seem like the same fighter who won TUF and Ko'd Cole.
