After a recent scouting trip to the United Kingdom, three top English fighters are heading to Bellator.

The organization today announced it has signed Martin Stapleton, Rob Sinclair and Paul Sass to long-term contracts, though terms of the deals weren't disclosed. Debut dates also haven't been announced, though tournament entries are possible.

According to the head of the company, this is likely a play to get Bellator on U.K. television.

It looks like Chandler has a new crop of contenders to fight. All 3 of these guys are excellent signings. I've been waiting for Sinclair to get signed to either Bellator or the UFC for a while now.

Nice! Not too familiar with Stapleton but I'm excited to see Sinclair and Sass on the roster.

WOW! Great signage on Bellators part. Glad to see Sinclair get his shot (I know Rabis gonna be horny bout that) & its also good to see Sass back in action. I don't know why the UFC cut him so prematurely but I've always been a fan of his

These guys all make great additions to Bellator. I'm curious to see what kind of match ups they receive.

I hate that Chandler probably signed his life away to Bellator because he's never going to prove he's the best In the world beating the Uks best. No offense to the Uk just saying Chandler is wasting a truly special career
