UFC Vet Diego Nunes Confirms Bellator Signing
By FCF Staff
Bellator has reportedly added another UFC vet to its roster, as Diego Nunes has announced via Twitter that he has signed with the promotion.
In addition to tweeting “Bellator fighter!”, the 30 year-old, Brazilian featherweight posted “I want to make my story in the Bellator!”
The tweets correspond with several reports that have relayed Nunes is headed to Bellator. There’s no word yet from the promotion regarding the signing and when Nunes will make his debut.
Nunes was let go by the UFC after he lost by unanimous decision to Nik Lentz at UFC on FX 7 in January, which followed a UD victory he recorded over Bart Palaszewski in October.
The resilient fighter went 7-4 during his run with the UFC and WEC, and also scored notable wins over Mike Brown, Raphael Assuncao, and Manny Gamburyan.
Just last week Bellator announced that it has signed former UFC light-heavyweight champ “Rampage” Jackson.
