Former UFC fighter Marcus “Irish Hand Grenade” Davis has inked a long-term contract with Bellator MMA. He will take part in the promotion’s Season 9 lightweight tournament this fall.
Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney announced the deal via Twitter on Friday night.
“Proud to officially announce @irishgrenade has signed a long-term deal w/@BellatorMMA,” wrote Rebney. “Class act & super exciting fighter. Fall LW tourney!”
Davis (21-9) has fought once for Bellator, although it didn’t go as well as anyone had hoped.
