After knocking off a Bellator champion in a recent non-title fight, Travis Wiuff may get a chance to do the real thing.

The veteran fighter has signed a long-term deal with Bellator and is expected to compete in a future Bellator light-heavyweight tournament.

Sources close to the fighter confirmed the plans with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Terms of Wiuff's deal were not disclosed.

Wiuff (65-14 MMA, 1-0 BFC), who scored a unanimous-decision victory over light-heavyweight champion Christian M'Pumbu in October at Bellator 55, didn't get the belt since the bout was a non-title "super fight." (Bellator only awards titles and title shots to fighters who win the organization's eight-man tourneys, and the M'Pumbu bout marked Wiuff's promotional debut.)
