The year 2011 has been a banner one for "The Ultimate Fighter 8" finalist Vinny Magalhaes.

So far he's registered four straight MMA wins (all finishes), captured the M-1 Global light-heavyweight title, and recently won a gold medal at the prestigious Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) Submission Wrestling World Championships.

The grappling tournament acted as a weekend getaway as Magalhaes finished up his training camp for his first title defense.

Magalhaes (8-5) is set to put his title on the line against Mikhail Zayats (14-5) on this Friday in the co-headliner of "M-1 Challenge 27: Garner vs. Grishin." The event takes place at the Grand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix, Ariz. and airs live on Showtime.

Vinny is one of the top grapplers in the world, and has looked more accustomed to MMA in his last few fights. I bet we see him back in the UFC before too long.
