Manager Says Jon Jones May Never Return to the UFC

Bellator signs former K-1 Champion Ewerton Teixiera
Bellator has added a Brazilian heavyweight to its roster. Ewerton Teixeira, Winner of the K-1 World GP in 2008 and world champion in kyokushin, has signed a deal with Bellator, sources close to the situation told MMAFighting.com. Combate first reported the news. I always liked Teixiera, he's a better kickboxer than Mighty Mo and Peter Graham and they did ok in Bellator. This should be fun.
