    Bellator MMA has bolstered its roster with the signing of a trio of fighters from Brazil.

    Julio Cesar Neves, Cleiton Duarte and Diego Marlon are the latest additions to Bellator's ranks. The promotion announced the three signings on Tuesday. All three fighters are part of Prime Fighters Management, which is run by Marcelo Brigadeiro.

    The deal comes not long after Bellator signed a broadcast deal with FOX Sports Latin America for future programming.

    "As we continue scouting and signing the best talent in the world, Marcelo and his team at Prime Fighters Management are tremendous, trusted allies as we expand further into Brazil with our groundbreaking FOX Sports Latin America alliance," Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney stated.

    Neves (28-0 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) has an incredible 25 stoppages on his unbeaten resume of 28 wins. The featherweight, nicknamed "Morceguinho," has 17 knockouts and eight submissions. In 2013 alone, he's gone 14-0.

    "I came to Bellator to fight the best in the world," Neves stated. "The Bellator featherweight division has some of the best fighters in the world, and I want to fight the best."

    His MMA record reads like an unlockable character in Tekken. Back in February he knocked out a dude with a flying knee in just thirty-seven seconds. Earlier this year he TKOd a guy at CTA Combat in just over a minute. In fact in his last nine fights he finished all of them. Wait, there's still some more of your mind to be blown, I see it there -- cowering in the back of your skull. He's already fought seventeen times this year and he's only been past the first round only once in 2013. In his 28-0 career he's only been to the judges twice. That's twenty-five finishes in a twenty-fight career.
