Bellator’s welterweight roster just got even deeper.
The bout was first reported by MMAjunkie.
A three-time NCAA wrestling champion, Ruth is unbeaten in four appearances for Bellator, with all of his wins coming by way of knockout. Most recently, the 27-year-old Penn State alum finished former UFC fighter Chris Dempsey with strikes in the second round of their meeting at Bellator 186 last November. None of Ruth’s opponents have made it to round three.
Furko will be making his Bellator debut. The 28-year-old Hungarian holds a 6-3 professional record, with wins in three of his past four outings including back-to-back first-round KO victories.
