That is cool. I like Markham. He needs to "tighten up" though. He is too wild and crazy for his own weak chin. It is usually a KO for or a KO against. He needs to pick and choose his slugfests a little better. He sure is exciting though.

Good signing.....I hope he doesn't have any problems making weight though.

I think they are a lot more likely to put on a catch weight fight for him in Bellator if that was a problem, so long as it wasn't a consistant problem.....him vs Saunders is a great idea!

YES! I said from the beginning that the UFC would be just too much for Markham. He's not world class, but he has what it takes to make it big somewhere like Bellator. I hope he does well.
