Bubba Jenkins has a new place to call home in MMA.
The former longtime Bellator featherweight, and 2011 NCAA Division I champion, has inked a multi-fight contract with Brave Combat Federation, promotion officials told MMA Fighting. The company has yet to set a date and opponent for his debut.
Jenkins (12-4) competed 11 times inside the Bellator cage, going 8-3 between 2013 and 2016. “The Highlight Kid”, who scored his last Bellator win over Goiti Yamauchi, parted ways with the company after losing to Georgi Karakhanyan in a catchweight bout.
The decorated wrestler fought twice in 2017 after leaving Scott Coker’s company, losing to Ali Bagov before stopping Diego Marlon under the ACB banner in England.
