Bellator signs undefeated welterweight Neiman Gracie


Another Gracie is heading over to Bellator, but this one will actually get inside the cage.

A couple weeks after the announcement of Royce Gracie as the new brand ambassador for Bellator, the promotion signed undefeated Neiman Gracie, who enters the promotion with a 2-0 record after a pair of submission wins under the World Series of Fighting banner.

"I just signed a multi-fight deal with Bellator MMA," Gracie announced on his Instagram page. "I'm very happy to be part of this great company! I'm happy to represent jiu-jitsu in this great event."

Neiman Gracie told his contract with WSOF was over when he got an offer from Bellator, and he expects to make his Bellator debut in February.

The Renzo Gracie protégé, who tapped Darren Costa and Dustin Holyko at middleweight and 175-pound catchweight bouts in WSOF, respectively, will fight at 170 pounds in Bellator.
