Sengoku break-out star Maximo Blanco spoke to MMAWeekly.com recently, and there are some interesting bits of info here. The Venezuelen Lightweight fighter confirms that he has left Sengoku, and is now looking to make his name in the US. Blanco has signed with US based management company SuckerPunch Entertainment, and is hoping they can help him as he looks to make his stateside debut. SuckerPunch represents some quality, upper level fighters, including UFC names like Pat Barry and Donald Cerrone, plus fighters for Strikeforce, Bellator, and various other organizations.

If you have never seen Blanco fight, you are missing out. The man is a joy to watch, bringing a wild intensity to his fights...

Blanco is awesome to watch. I think he'd do okay in the ufc but he would probably be best suited for Bellator right now.

He is proof that Venezuela has some type on nucular testing going on. Dude hits with the force of a train and is missing a belly button. If thats no proof I don't know what is.

I'd give you props if I didn't have to spread it around. I can't wait to see Blanco in the UFC, you know they want to sign somebody that's this exciting.

Maximo is one of the most violent human beings I've seen in a ring. I'd love to see him go up against another scrapper like Edson Barboza or Melvin Guillard.
