Siyar Bahadurzada (20-4-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is apparently UFC bound.

As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) reported this past week, Bahadurzada said he had been offered a deal with the world's top MMA promotion, and he hinted he was likely to accept it.

Today, the reigning Shooto light-heavyweight champion and current 170-pounder took to Twitter to announce a deal has been completed.

"I signed with the UFC!" he tweeted. "I'm very excited to be a part of the UFC and test my skills with the crème de la crème of MMA.

"I wanna thank the UFC and Dana White for this opportunity. I will shake up the [welterweight] division!Also special thanks to my team Golden Glory!"

A debut date and first opponent were not disclosed.

I hope so too! He's a great fighter, and a welcome addition to the 170lb wrestling division.

I was thinking the same thing earlier. It's a fight that could definitely put him on the map.
