PostSubject: 3x NCAA Wrestling Champ Signs With Bellator, Not UFC - Citing Sponsors as One Reason   Mon May 11, 2015 10:29 pm

Quote :
Three-time NCAA wrestling champion and 2016 Olympic hopeful Ed Ruth has signed a multi-fight deal with Bellator MMA, according to promotion officials.

....

The wrestling phenom has trained in MMA alongside former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones at Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

"I've been talking with all the major organizations and at the end of the day I really believe in what [president] Scott Coker is doing with Bellator," Ruth said. "They're signing the top talent, putting on exciting fights and letting me secure my own sponsors.

I really think we are going to start seeing a pattern here. A lot of mid level fighters from the UFC will probably be heading over too.

Says he doesn't plan on fighting for a long time though (2016 Olympics, MMA some time after that). Sounds like Coker doesn't wanna wait and likely get into a bidding war for him.
