Report: Sergei Kharitonov Headed to Bellator
By FCF Staff
Not long after Bellator announced it has signed former UFC champ Benson Henderson, it’s being reported that the promotion has added another accomplished fighter to its roster in Sergei Kharitonov.
The 35 year-old, PRIDE and Strikeforce veteran has reportedly signed a multi-fight deal with Bellator. Sources close to the organization relayed the news to MMA Fighting.com. Kharitonov is expected to make his promotional debut in May.
The Russian heavyweight is riding a five fight winning streak, and since Kharitonov turned pro in 2000, he’s posted a record of 23-5.
