Lightweight fighter Marcin Held, who's posted an impressive 10-1 professional MMA record despite being just 18 years old, is headed to the U.S.
The Polish MMA prodigy has signed a multi-fight deal with Bellator Fighting Championships.
He's joined the organization's season-four lightweight tournament, which commences with an eight-man field in early 2011.
"We have been watching Marcin for over a year and are thrilled to be able to welcome him to Bellator," Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney stated. "He is a prodigy in every sense of the word and a tremendous addition to our lightweight division."
