Top German MMA fighter and M-1 ex-champ Stephan Puetz talks about his new contract with M-1 Global that he signed recently
Please tell us how many fights will you have in M-1 according to that new contract?
I have one fight left on my old contract and have decided to sign an extension of 3 more fights with the option of another 3 fights WHEN I am champion at the given time. T-800 will stay put for years and battles to come!
Why did you decide to stay in M-1?
It´s been quite an easy decision to be honest. I´ve been treated really well right from the start, not just by M-1 but also by the Russian audience. It has to be said that my mission has not been completed yet; I need to get back what belongs to me!
Did you have any other offers from other promotions?
Yes, I have received a couple of interesting offers from other promotions, but first things first: It´s my goal to bring destruction to any division at M-1 Global, which means there´s still a lot to do.
What is the main reason you decided to continue your career in M-1?
I simply have unfinished business left at M-1; two very close fights with Viktor to be precise and I will train harder than ever to put myself in pole position for another shot at gold. Adversity has made me a lot stronger and I´m determined to be crowned champion again!
