UFC veteran Jon Madsen (7-1 MMA, 0-0 BFC) is the latest addition to Bellator Fighting Championships' heavyweight roster.
Madsen's trainer and manager, Marc Fiore of Fiore MMA, today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the fighter this past month inked a deal that will see him compete in the promotion's next heavyweight tournament.
The timing of such a tournament is up in the air. A Bellator official said there are currently no plans for the heavyweights in its upcoming sixth season, but a tournament is planned for this year.
While he waits, Madsen is set to fight Jan. 21 in regional competition.LINK
