Noad Lahat signs with Bellator

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Noad Lahat is headed to Bellator.

The Israeli-born featherweight has signed with the promotion after recently parting ways with the UFC, MMA Fighting has learned. His debut fight hast yet to be finalized.

Lahat (9-2) was 2-2 in the UFC. He most recently lost flying knee knockout to Diego Rivas in February. He holds notable wins over Steven Siler and Niklas Bäckström inside the Octagon.

With Bellator considering a show in Israel later this year, the 32-year-old Lahat, who was just the second Israeli-born athlete to fight in the UFC, would seem to be a lock for that card, as well.
