Bellator Fighting Championships' recent shopping spree has netted another notable.

Officials today announced the signing of former World Victory Road/Sengoku champion and King of Pancrase Marlon Sandro (17-2 MMA, 0-0 BFC) to its featherweight roster.

Sandro won't compete in the organization's upcoming 145-pound tourney but will compete in season-four non-tourney fights on MTV2.

The Brazilian fighter and Nova Uniao team member never has competed in the U.S.

"Marlon Sandro is a phenomenal talent at 145," Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney stated. "Our featherweight division is absolutely stacked, and Sandro pushes that talent pool to an even higher level. I'm thrilled to have him on board."

Glad to see him sign somewhere, with the other orgs are starting to crumble.

Would like to eventually see him in the UFC.

I Think they were reluctant to sign him because he would prob be a contender rather quick and he is a very close training partner with Jose Aldo.

Maybe Bellator just offered Sandro more money. He's worth more to them.

I'm sure the UFC wanted Eddie Alvarez and he went to Bellator instead.

In other words...

1 fight per year.

Taking a real Strikeforce approach. Great way to compete with the UFC.

They said it is too late for this years tourny but next year he will be in it. Joe Warren must be droppin logs in his tighty whities.

Something tells me Joe Warren dosn't care about anything and would fight anyone for free.
