Bellator has signed high profile UFC vets in the past, but according to new reports, the promotion’s latest addition is the brother of one of the sport’s biggest names.

Chinzo Machida, who is the older brother of former UFC light-heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida, has reportedly signed a three fight deal with Bellator. The deal was reported first by the Brazilian outlet Tatame, and the fighter also confirmed the contract with MMA Fighting.com.

Machida has gone 3-2 since he had his first pro bout back in 2005, but has recorded two victories with Resurrection Fighting Alliance, after he returned to action in 2013.

The 37 year-old fighter believes he will make his Bellator debut in April or May, 2015.

Lyoto Machida, meanwhile, is scheduled to fight CB Dollaway at a UFC Fight Night card next Saturday.
