Solid pick up for Bellator and it's a great place for Vladdy to finish off his career.

Bellator has no intrest in picking off the UFC scrap heap......yet they take Vlady? I mean of everyone they have let go they took Vlady? seems strange.

My thoughts too, but he does hold name value and I doubt he beats the likes of Vegh and King Mo but he'll be a challenge to the other guys and he'll build up their 205 devision. Which is shockingly weak!

The Senior Circuit has gotten demolished in Bellator. I think Vlad is going to go down the same path as Clementi, Babalu & Petryzelli

I would agree with it likely just being because their lhw division is so weak, their champion isn't even top 20 in my opinion. I wonder also if their opinion on not signing ex ufc fighters will change now that wsof is doing it so openly and making cards that are likely more appealing to the casual viewer
