Bellator Fighting Championships has announced that it has added heavyweight and ProElite veteran Ryan Martinez to its roster. The Infinite MMA fighter will make his promotional debut on August 24th, against an opponent to be determined.

“The second I heard Bellator had interest in bringing me over, I thought the move was a no-brainer, so everything came together pretty quickly,” Martinez was quoted saying in a press release from the promotion. “Bellator without a doubt in my mind has the hungriest and most exciting fighters in this sport, and I want to be a part of that.”

Martinez is currently riding a five fight win streak which includes a victory over decorated NCAA wrestler Mark Ellis and most recently Cody Griffin.

“Cole Konrad has an unbelievable wrestling base and background, and Brett Rogers has made a name for himself in this sport, but all I see are guys that will be good names to put on my resume as wins,” Martinez added. “Nobody is as hungry as I am, and I’m ready to give it 120%.”
