Bellator has announced that it has signed the younger cousin of Khabib Nurmagomedov, Usman Nurmagomedov.

The promotion has announced that the undefeated lightweight has signed a multi-fight, multi-year deal.

In a press release announcing the signing, Bellator President Scott Coker stated:

“With today’s signing of Usman Nurmagomedov, we are making it clear that Bellator is home to the best fighters on the planet and an organization where the sport’s future stars are coming to compete,” Bellator President Scott Coker said. “I am thrilled to have Usman join the promotion and he will be placed in an immediate position to showcase his skills and contend at 155-pounds. We hope to have him in action inside the Bellator cage by December or January.”

Nurmagomedov (11-0) fought last month at a Fight Nights Global card and stopped Svyatoslav Shabanov.
