Bellator MMA has added a huge addition to their heavyweight division with an undefeated heavyweight champion.
Undefeated PFL champion Ali Isaev, who claimed the 2019 season title, has inked a multi-fight deal with the Paramount-owned promotion.
“Our heavyweight division has just gotten even deeper with the addition of undefeated Ali Isaev,” Bellator President Scott Coker said in a statement. I know he hasn’t competed since 2019, so we look forward to getting him back in action inside the Bellator cage as soon as possible.”
With a perfect 9-0 record, Isaev looked to be a dominant champion in the PFL after tearing through the competition in his first season with the promotion in 2019. He picked up four consecutive wins in a row, capped off by a TKO over UFC veteran Jared Rosholt to claim the season title.
