Bellator Inks Pair

Bellator Fighting Championships has added a pair to their roster as they have signed Brazilian bantamweight Rodrigo Lima and German middleweight Jonas Billstein.

The signings have been confirmed by sources close to both fighters following previous reports by Tatame and MMAJunkie.com, respectively.

While both fighters have fought at heavier weight classes before, they will fight at their natural weight class (bantamweight and middleweight, respectively) while with BFC.

Lima is currently undefeated at 8-0, with six of those wins coming in the first round. His most recent action in the cage came in May as he submitted Heliovanio da Silva; that decision is his only bout this year.

Meanwhile, Billstein – after winning his first nine bouts – took a loss as he was submitted by Attila Vegh on June 23. Prior to this loss, he had won eight of his last nine, knocking out seven along the way.
