UFC 195 Media Day

Another fighter in his prime has jumped to Bellator from the UFC.

Southern California welterweight Lorenz Larkin has signed with Bellator after spending his past four years in the UFC. The Riverside Press Enterprise initially reported the signing Thursday.

Larkin (18-5, 1 NC) enters Bellator the winner of two straight fights and four out of his past five. His last bout was a first-round TKO victory over Neil Magny at UFC 202.

“It used to be back in the day that the UFC was a super power,” Larkin, whose biggest career win was a 2012 decision over Robbie Lawler in 2012, told the Press Enterprise. “But a lot of organizations are coming up and it’s not like that any more.”

Bellator CEO Scott Coker welcomed his new contender over Twitter.

“Looking forward to seeing @da_MONSOON in the @BellatorMMA cage very soon. Welcome back Lorenz!” Coker tweeted.
