Unhappy with his longtime management company and MMA team, Siyar Bahadurzada (20-4-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is leaving Golden Glory.

In a brief interview today with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), the UFC welterweight cited pay and contract issues for his decision.

"They didn't pay me my money for the Glory World Series that I fought in May 2011, and they're keeping me in the dark about my contract and extended the contract for another five years," Bahadurzada said.

Bahadurzada's move comes two months prior to his UFC debut, which comes at UFC on FUEL TV 2. The former Shooto and Sengoku champion is slated to face Paulo Thiago (14-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) on the main card of the event, which takes place April 14 at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. (Main-card fights air on FUEL TV while preliminary-card fights stream on Facebook.)

Representatives for Golden Glory could not be reached for comment.

Good for him, they clearly aren't treating their fighters right. Hope Siyar ends up getting his money, its bullshit!

I'm not sure where you get the clearly from? The only other case I know of is Alistair, and he screwed them over based on most accounts.

Well they're the biggest stars in this camp and aren't getting paid it just doesn't seem like anyone is happy with what GG is doing. Maybe clearly wasn't the right word but I haven't heard anything positive come from the management there in a long time.
