After recently signing Brazilian Top Team's David Bielkheden , the UFC is expected to ink another BTT athlete: Fury GP 185-pound champion Rousimar Palhares, Sherdog.com has learned.

A native of Minas Gerais, Brazil, Palhares (7-1) is a prospect who has a chance to reach the top in the UFC. He has won five straight, including first-round wins over UFC veteran Flavio Luis Moura, Pan-Arm jiu-jitsu champion Fabio Negao (Pictures) and Pride Bushido veteran Daniel Acacio. None of these quality fighters were competitive against Palhares.
