Australian Soa "The Hulk" Palelei has signed with American based Paradigm Sports Management for full sports representation and joins such fighters Lorenz Larkin, Cyrille Diabate, Michael Bisping, Court McGee, Jake Shields and Mike Pierce on the books of the management company.
The representative company announced the signing via press-release on Monday.
Soa Palelei had this to say about the signing in the press-release to announce the signing:
“I chose to sign with Paradigm MMA Management because it felt right, as much as it’s a business venture, I feel that Paradigm MMA Management genuinely cares about me as a client and athlete. I feel they will work with me, and my team, to help me grow in the industry.
I’m very selective as to whom I work with, and let into my business, and with Paradigm MMA Management I feel secure, I see them as part of the Hulk Family. My drive and resilience along with Paradigm’s discipline and experience we will do huge things. Everyone just needs to tune in and watch this sport.”
The Perth based fighter has a professional record of 18 wins from 21 fights and is currently on an 8 fight win streak. None of his fights have yet to go the distance. Palelei last year turned out a multi-fight contract with One FC in the hope of getting another shot in the UFC. In his lone appearance in the UFC, Soa lost to Eddie Sanchez back in 2007.
