Vinny Magalhaes missed out on a chance to win a million dollars in PFL’s inaugural tournament on NYE. This prompted Magalhaes to pull away from public life for a quick second and catch his breath.
Even though he was initially announced in the 4 men CJJ Tournament – his manager Ali Abdelaziz then debunked the news
Just to be clear @VinnyMMA never agreed to do combat Jiujitsu Vs @JoshLBarnett or @FabricioWerdum or Gordon Ryan. I know @eddiebravo announced it but Vinny is fighting for a million dollars for PFL this is his number one focus #leglocksdontwork

Now it looks like Rustam Chsiev is ready to step in for him:
