BAMMA Lightweight Champion Ryan Scope has signed a multi-fight contract with Bellator MMA according to MMA Fighting, entering the promotion with a record of 10-1-0.
Scope won the BAMMA Lightweight Title when he defeated UFC veteran Mickael Lebout by split decision at BAMME 33 in December of 2017.
Lewis Long was the lone fighter to defeat Scope in his professional MMA career, with that setback coming at Made 4 The Cage 23: Carnage in February of 2017.
The fighter has also seen just two of his professional MMA bouts go the distance, with one of them being the aforementioned bout against Mickael Lebout and the other coming against Ali Arish at BAMMA 15.
Outside of BAMMA and Made 4 The Cage, other promotion that Scope competed in include Absolute Championships Berkut, Total Combat and Strike & Submit.
Bellator MMA hasn’t announced a return to the country of England yet, so there is a good shot that Scope makes his promotional debut outside of his home country. If true, it would mean that Scope would be competing outside of the United Kingdom for the first time in his professional MMA career.
Neither Scope or Bellator MMA have confirmed a debut date for the fighter or a potential opponent.
