Jorge Santiago quickly realized he'd messed up in his return to the octagon.

"It took me like a half-hour," he today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "Soon as I left the ring, I was like, '[Expletive].' That wasn't me."

Santiago's thoughts came in the late hours of May 30 as the main card of UFC 130 got into full swing. He had fallen to Brian Stann's punches in the second round, which deflated a wave of hype that brought him back to the UFC after a five-year absence.

The following weekend, Santiago was back at the gym training. He wanted to get back in the cage as soon as possible.

"I asked my manager (to) get me a fight," he said. "I know I can fight the way I used to fight, and I want to prove that I can do it."

as much as I want Jorge to win, I just don't see it. Had Maia's striking not looked so good in the Munoz fight, I'd be picking Jorge. But it did. So I'm not.

I'm pulling for and picking Jorge.

I hate to see guys do well outside the UFC and then come to the UFC and not do well.

Jorge is a great fighter outside of UFC but in the proving ground he just doesn't have the goods.I see his future in Shark Fights or Dream.
