Bellator signs Brazilians Julio Cesar Neves, Cleiton Duarte, Diego Marlon

Bellator MMA has bolstered its roster with the signing of a trio of fighters from Brazil.

Julio Cesar Neves, Cleiton Duarte and Diego Marlon are the latest additions to Bellator's ranks. The promotion announced the three signings on Tuesday. All three fighters are part of Prime Fighters Management, which is run by Marcelo Brigadeiro.

The deal comes not long after Bellator signed a broadcast deal with FOX Sports Latin America for future programming.

"As we continue scouting and signing the best talent in the world, Marcelo and his team at Prime Fighters Management are tremendous, trusted allies as we expand further into Brazil with our groundbreaking FOX Sports Latin America alliance," Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney stated.

Neves (28-0 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) has an incredible 25 stoppages on his unbeaten resume of 28 wins. The featherweight, nicknamed "Morceguinho," has 17 knockouts and eight submissions. In 2013 alone, he's gone 14-0.

"I came to Bellator to fight the best in the world," Neves stated. "The Bellator featherweight division has some of the best fighters in the world, and I want to fight the best."

Lightweight Duarte (13-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA) has a dozen knockouts on the ledger. His two losses have come in his past four fights, but before that, he started his pro career 11-0.

Marlon (23-8 MMA, 0-0 BMMA), also a featherweight, has 19 stoppage wins in his 23 career victories. In 2013, he's 5-1, including three straight first-round stoppages.

No specific fight dates have been announced for the fighters, but they likely will be part of their respective divisions' tournaments next season.

Bellator has added another finisher to its roster.

Undefeated featherweight Julio Cesar Neves Junior, better known in Brazil simply as "Morceguinho", has signed a deal with Bellator after racking up an impressive 28-0 record in the Brazilian regional circuit.

The 19-year-old fighter has gone the distance only three times in his career, finishing 17 fights via knockout -- including this "knockout of the year" candidate -- and eight via submission since his MMA debut on October 2011.

Neves, the younger brother of Bellator tournament winner Rafael "Morcego" Silva (21-3), has won 18 fights over the last 12 months, and the date and opponent for his Bellator debut are yet to be announced.
Sounds like some exciting prospects. Very active finishers, can't wait to see who they fight and how they do.

So they're signing some legit up and comers like they were when they were a rising promotion as compared to when they went on the UFC signing spree. This maybe their redeeming factor in the lighter weights. It may help out for the future tournaments.

Yeah I'm glad they're signing up and coming contenders instead of UFC dropouts.
