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.
