Bellator Fighting Championships signs Russian Mikhail Malyutin

Quote:
Thirty-year-old Mikhail Malyutin (21-9 MMA, 0-0 BFC) is the latest addition to the Bellator Fighting Championships roster.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has confirmed with sources close to the promotion that the K Dojo lightweight has agreed to terms with Bellator and could compete in a non-tourney bout in the promotion's current sixth season.

A near-seven-year veteran of the sport, Malyutin is currently 3-1 in his past four fights.

A 15-time veteran of M-1 Global events, Malyutin fought most recently at November's "M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Monson" event, where he earned a 47-second win over Seydina Seck. Prior to that result, Malyutin bookended a decision loss to Gor Harutunian with Ring of Combat wins over respected veterans Chris Liguori and Luiz Azeredo.

Malyutin is just 4-3 in his past seven fights, but he went 9-1 in the 10-fight stretch preceding his current run.

Malyutin's debut fight for the promotion has yet to be announced.

The Russian is the latest score for Bellator's renowned international-recruiting team, which has introduced many of the globe's top prospects to North American audiences.
