The Bellator Fighting Championships announced today that they have signed Ryan Martinez to their heavyweight roster.
Martinez (7-1), an Infinite MMA based fighter, is expected to make his debut at Bellator 73 on August 24th. Bellator 73 features featherweight champion Pat Curran defending his title against Patricio “Pitbull” Freire.
Martinez commented on his new home saying, “Bellator without a doubt in my mind has the hungriest and most exciting fighters in this sport, and I want to be a part of that.” He will carry a five fight winning streak into his Bellator debut. Martinez last fought at ProElite 3 in January where he notched a unanimous decision win over Cody Griffin.
