Another member of the legendary Gracie Family is reportedly making his way to Bellator MMA as Kywan Gracie Behring has signed with the promotion.
Gracie, who is the fifth Gracie Family member to have signed with the promotion, is excited to be a part of the Bellator MMA roster.
“I'm really happy to sign a contract with Bellator,” he said to MMA Fighting. “And I can't thank (Bellator Europe's) Jude Samuel enough for the opportunity of being part of the promotion.”
The newly signed competitor holds a 1-0-0 record as a professional MMA fighter, having defeated Jake Watkins by first round TKO at Celtic Gladiator Academy 4.
If there is one goal that Gracie wants to accomplish as a professional MMA fighter, it is to become a champion.
“My goal in MMA is to come in and become champion,” he said. “I’m not here to have fun. It’s about being the best and fighting the best. Whenever they can, I’ve already asked them to give me Dillon Danis. He talks too much. Every time he opens his mouth he’s talking crap.”
There is no word yet on when Gracie is going to make his promotional debut or whom that will come against.
