Bellator MMA’s investment in blue-chip prospects in recent years is already beginning to pay dividends.

Aaron Pico is well on his way to becoming a next-generation star; Dillon Danis, love him or hate him, brings the promotion plenty of attention; and others like A.J. McKee are well on their way to becoming standout pros.

The latest in Bellator’s long line of top-notch signings from the wrestling and grappling worlds came on Monday with the news jiu-jitsu competitor A.J. Agazarm has signed with the promotion. MMA Fighting confirmed after Agazarm announced the news on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show.

The Gracie-Barra black belt from Los Angeles by way of Florida boasts an impressive set of credentials, including the IBJJF world no-gi championship in 2014 and a second-place ADCC finish in 2014. He also boasts a collegiate wrestling background, having competed at Ohio State University.

Agazarm has been seen around Los Angeles training with notable names in the MMA world in recent months, including Nick Diaz.
