Recent Bellator title challenger Jay Hieron (22-5) is headed to Legacy Fighting Championships.

LFC promoter Mick Maynard today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the fighter – who's also competed with the UFC, Strikeforce, WEC and IFL – has verbally agreed to a three-fight deal with the promotion.

The 35-year-old Hieron is expected to make his promotional debut at Legacy Fighting Championships 12, which airs live on HDNet on July 13.

Legacy Fighting Championships 12, which is also expected to feature Robert Drysdale vs. Isaac "Ike" Villanueva, takes place at Houston's Arena Theater. Hieron's opponent will be finalized in the coming weeks.

His ego is getting in the way of ever earning a chance to earn his way back to the UFC. He lost by SD to a very skilled wrestler, if he went on a 3 fight finishing streak Zuffa would take notice.

I'm really surprised Bellator didn't re-sign him. Especially after the close fight with Rocky Dennis Askren.

Is there bad blood between him and the UFC? Kind of surprising they didn't sign him after his Strikeforce deal ended and now after Bellator run ended.
