Another big name has made his way over to the ARES FC roster as former Bellator MMA Lightweight Champion Will Brooks has signed with the promotion.
It was ARES FC matchmaker Alan Murphy who revealed the signing via Twitter:

Brooks (20-5-1) has won two of his last seven fights entering ARES FC, with those wins coming over the duo of Luiz Firmino and Robert Watley. Brooks won just one of four when competing in the UFC, with that lone win coming over Ross Pearson at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale. Brooks is a former Bellator MMA Lightweight Champion, defeating Michael Chandler to win the gold at Bellator 120 in May of 2014.
There is no word yet on when Brooks will make his promotional debut, as ARES FC was forced to cancel their latest event due to the coronavirus.
