MMA Junkie Reports:

Ben Saunders

– 9-3-2 MMA/ Bellator Debut

– Lost 2 0f last 3 Fights

– Notable Wins: Marcus Davis, Brandon Wolff, Ryan Thomas


UFC veteran, Ben Saunders has signed a multi-fight deal with Bellator Fighting Championships to compete in non-tournament fights.

Ben Saunders was released from the UFC following back-to-back losses against Jon Fitch and Dennis Hallman. Last November he got back on the right track with a victory over Elijah Harshbarger at a World Extreme Fighting event. Saunders will always be remembered for the beat down he put on Brandon Wolff with vicious knees from the thai clinch, leaving a grapefruit-sized lump on Wolff’s forehead.

There is no word yet on when Saunders will make his debut with the promotion, nor has any possible opponents been rumored.
