A new threat is making his way to the Bellator bantamweight division as the promotion has reportedly signed Magomed Magomedov to a contract.
Marcel Dorff of MMA DNA first reported the news.
Magomedov (16-1-0) enters the promotion riding a three-fight winning streak with those wins coming over Dean Garnett, Edgars Skrivers and Walter Pereira Jr. Magomedov is a former Absolute Championship Berkut bantamweight champion, defeating UFC veteran Petr Yan at ACB 32 to win the gold. Magomedov has suffered a single defeat as a professional MMA fighter and that loss came to the aforementioned Yan in their rematch at ACB 57. Magomedov has competed a total of 17 times as a professional MMA fighter and six of those bouts went the distance.
There is no word at this time as to when Magomedov will make his promotional debut or whom that bout will come against.
