Neiman Gracie won’t be going anywhere for quite awhile, at least where Bellator MMA is concerned, because the fighter has signed a longterm deal with the promotion according to MMA Fighting.
Although the report states that Gracie has inked a new deal with Bellator MMA, it does not reveal how much the fighter is making now or for how many bouts the contract is for.
Gracie currently sits at 6-0-0 in Bellator MMA (8-0-0 overall), having defeated Bobby Flynn, Roger Carroll, Rudy Bears, Dave Marfone, Zak Bucia and Javier Torres. Gracie also competed twice in the World Series Of Fighting before coming to Bellator MMA, defeating the duo of Darren Costa and Dustin Holyko.
The newly signed Gracie doesn’t have his next bout announced at this time, with the Brazilians last promotional appearance coming at Bellator 198, where the undefeated star submitted Javier Torres in the second round of their encounter. Neiman is also one of three Gracie family members that have competed in Bellator MMA, with the other two being Khrony Gracie and UFC Hall Of Fame member Royce Gracie.
While Bellator MMA has no public rankings system (like the UFC does), but Fightful does and Gracie sits at #8 in the welterweight division top ten.
