After signing notables Dan Hornbuckle (19-2), Jacob McClintock (6-0) and Ben Askren (3-0) for its upcoming eight-man welterweight tournament, Bellator Fighting Championships has added another star competitor to the field: top British 170-pounder Jim Wallhead (18-5).

Bellator officials today informed MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that "Judo Jim" has signed a multi-fight deal with the organization to compete in the tournament.

Well at least that will be a reasonable fight for Hornbuckle....I like that Hornbuckle is getting this experience but I did think that the competition wasn't stiff enough. Now it should be much better.

That's quite a group of welterweights. I don't see anyone being able to cope with Askren's sick genetic gifts, but Hornbuckle will be the best bet.

I am definitely going to be watching this season. There's a shitload of up and comers that I'm very interested in watching. It looks like the WW division will be very exciting. I can't wait to see who they will find to challenge Alvarez for the LW belt.

WAR Alvarez.

As glad as i am to see that Wallhead has finally been signed to a 'big' promotion, i also think he should have dropped to LW and this decision will hinder him on the world stage.


Even so........WAR JUDO!!
