Add another UFC veteran to the pile of fighters who have been signed by ARES FC because the promotion has inked a deal with Danilo Belluardo.
ARES FC announced the news through Twitter:
--NEW FIGHTER SIGNING--We are thrilled to announce the signing of Italian Venator Champion & UFC veteran, @BelluardoDanilo at ARES Fighting! Ranked 1st in Lightweight in ---- & with an impressive 50% Knockout record (12-0- 5), Caterpillar is ready to hatch within our promotion -- pic.twitter.com/8ir1PNOpG4— ares_fighting (@ares_fighting) June 4, 2020
Belluardo (12-5-0) went winless during his time in the UFC, dropping bouts to the duo of Joel Alvarez and Mark Madsen. Belluardo also competed once under the Bellator MMA banner, dropping a bout to AJ McKee at Bellator 152. Belluardo hasn’t picked up a victory in over a year, with that last win coming against Denilson Neves De Oliveira at Venator FC 5 in March of 2019.
There is no word yet on when Belluardo will make his promotional debut or whom that bout will come against.
