UFC light heavyweight contender Ryan Bader dropped from the UFC earlier this year. Provided clearance letters, the fighter was set to go free agent.
While rumors have been swirling that the UFC veteran would be making his way to Bellator, it looks like now it’s official. Bader has signed a contract.
MMA Junkie’s Steven Marrocco tweeted today, “Sorry, meant Ryan Bader is sending in signed Bellator contract today, per@ScottCoker. Story coming to mmajunkie.com.”
