DENIS KANG TESTING FREE AGENCY WATERS AGAIN   [View Full Version]
MMAcca » Posted 4/30/07 3:11:00PM

Considered a top free agent just over a year ago, former Pride fighter Denis Kang is back on the market after his most recent deal with Dream expired and he is looking for a new home.

The Canadian based fighter will next compete on the Raw Combat card this weekend against Marvin Eastman, but soon after he hopes to sign on with a new organization to call home.

"The Dream contract actually expired," Kang said on MMAWeekly Radio Monday. "I got one fight left, but it expired in September and we're negotiating with a few different parties right now."

While Kang could not name any of his potential suitors he did verify that "several" of them are based out of North America.

During Kang's last free agency period he was adamant about being able to fight in Korea as a part of any contract. While it is sure to still be a point of order, Kang did talk about the possibility of landing with an exclusive contract if the right promotion came along.

UFC maybe can pull a deal? Not sure how much Kang is worth.

kang doesnt have that much pull in north america to be making demands....with any promotion....hes been losing, lackluster fights, and even a solid win against eastman isnt gonna change that....i could see him in strikeforce at best, atleast with his demands....if he gets off his high horse then he could be in the ufc

he needs to bite the bullet and leave some money and freedom on the table and sign with the ufc. the ufc has the best fighters in the world by far and they are marketing machines. hope to see another canadian in the octagon. people need to see this guy fight.

He won't sign with the UFC, he likes fighting in Spirit and will likely sign with Affliction or Strikeforce.

Strikeforce would be a good move for Kang. they will pay him fairly and give him some solid match-ups too.
