Matt Mitrione Leaves The UFC For Bellator MMA
BJPenn.com – Bellator MMA has acquired another big name from the UFC following the signing of former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson and MMA legend Wanderlei Silva.
Former NFL player and UFC heavyweight Matt Mitrione announced his decision to sign with Bellator MMA on the MMA Hour on Monday.
Bellator seems to be doing the right things when it comes to UFC free agents. I thought Mitrione would probably leave after his latest loss because it would take a lot of time to work himself back into title contention. He could go into Bellator and get an immediate title shot. He is an exciting fighter with a ton of power and could easily become champion for the growing promotion. Fans either love him or hate him and that will work as Bellator tries to grow their ratings and attract new fans.
