John Maguire Making Career Move, As UFC Fighter Heads To Middleweight

John Maguire surprised many with a recent announcement, as the British fighter is moving to the middleweight ranks.

“Getting on the plane and yes I’m going back to middleweight!:)” Maguire posted on Twitter recently.

Maguire (18-5) was defeated by Matt Riddle over the weekend at UFC 154. He also dropped a decision to John Hathaway earlier this year, prompting the decision to test his skills in another weight class.

Maguire dropped to welterweight after a 2009 loss to current UFC fighter Tom Watson.
