Report: Carlo Pedersoli Jr. Cut By UFC, Signs With Bellator MMA

Carlo Pedersoli Jr. didn’t take long to find a new home to fight in as the fighter, who was reportedly released by the UFC, has been signed by Bellator MMA.

The fighter revealed the release and the signing via Instagram:


Dopo aver fatto tre match all'UFC tutti con short notice,pensavo di aver dato abbastanza all'azienda per avere un'altra possibilità nell'ultimo match del mio contratto. Non è stato così e nel frattempo ho ricevuto due proposte da altre organizzazioni. Una di queste due non poteva davvero essere rifiutata e quindi con molto entusiasmo annuncio la mia firma con la promotion Bellator. Il trattamento che mi hanno riservato,da ogni punto di vista, è andato al la di ogni mia aspettativa e davvero mi sento apprezzato come non mai nella mia carriera. Ci sono progetti grandissimi e sono davvero emozionato di cominciare questa nuova avventura. #CPJr #SkyIsTheLimit #Semento #bellatormma

“After having made three matches at the UFC everyone with short notice, I thought I had given enough to the company to get another chance in the last match of my contract. That was not the case and in the meantime I received two proposals from other organizations. One of these two could not really be refused and so with great enthusiasm I announced my signature with the Bellator promotion. The treatment I was given, from every point of view, has gone beyond my expectations and I truly feel appreciated as never before in my career. There are great projects and I'm really excited to start this new adventure.”
