Tarec Saffiedine went down in the history books as the final Strikeforce welterweight champion.

Since his title-winning bout over Nate Marquardt, though, he has been forced to stand on the sidelines due to a number of injuries.

Saffiedine is slated to finally compete inside the Octagon in 2014 when he takes on Jake Ellenberger in Singapore.

Recently, RM Sports sat down with Saffiedine to talk with the former champion.
