Former NCAA Division I National Champion wrestler, Bubba Jenkins signs a multi-fight deal with Bellator. There’s no word on when he will make his debut, but he’s expected to get a few non-tournament bouts before getting the chance to compete in a future bracket. Jenkins is a perfect 3-0 to start his young career, most recently submitting Jesus Adame at Resurrection Fighting Alliance 3 in June of last year.

Three-time UFC veteran, John Alessio signed a multi-fight deal with Bellator and is expected to compete in their lightweight division after spending most of his career as a welterweight. He was released from the UFC in July of last year after back-to-back losses to Mark Bocek and Shane Roller. Alessio made his 155-pound debut at a Aggression Fighting Championship event in November of last year against Dave Mazany, but the fight was called a no-contest after Alessio was poked in the eye and unable to continue.
