– Gegard Mousasi has consented to a multi-battle arrangement with Bellator MMA after the UFC postponed the coordinating time frame on his past contract, as per MMAJunkie. Mousasi (42-6-2) is riding a five-battle winning streak, with his last triumph coming over Chris Weidman at UFC 210 in April. The UFC was purportedly unwilling to meet his pay requests, so he strolled despite the fact that his inclination was to re-sign with the advancement.
"I'm excited to welcome Gegard to the developing Bellator family," Bellator President Scott Coker said in an announcement. "He's a standout amongst the most balanced contenders in all of MMA and can contend in different divisions, so truly opens up some energizing matchmaking open doors for us and for the fans. We're anticipating having him contend on Spike soon."

That is snappier than it will take you to come into the ring. So be, exceptionally conscious with how you talk my name."
