Bellator has added a top-tier light-heavyweight to its roster, as the promotion’s announced the signing of former UFC contender, Corey Anderson.

Recently Bellator tweeted out the news that the company has signed the 30-year-old fighter.

Anderson (13-5) made his way to the UFC by winning the 19th Season of The Ultimate Fighter. In more recent years, the experienced wrestler moved into title contention via four fight winning streak, which included wins over Ilir Latifi, Glover Teixeira, Patrick Cummins and Johnny Walker.

In Anderson’s last bout this past February, however, he was knocked out by Jan Blachowicz.

Bellator has not announced any details yet as to when Anderson will make his promotional debut or who he’ll fight.
