Highly touted heavyweight prospect Cole Konrad (2-0) is the latest addition to the upstart Bellator Fighting Championships organization.

The former NCAA wrestling champion and current training partner of UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar was officially announced as the newest member of the organization immediately after a first-round TKO win at a Matrix Fights event in Philadelphia.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since learned that the 25-year-old is expected to compete in two non-tournament bouts during Bellator's second season, and positive results will likely lead to a spot in an as-yet-unannounced heavyweight tournament during the promotion's third season.

"I'm excited to sign with Bellator," Konrad said following the win. "It's a great opportunity to fight for a great company, and I'm just really excited for what the future holds with this company."

Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney was in attendance for Konrad's win over Joel Wyatt, and the executive expressed his excitement over the signing.

"Cole Konrad brings some great characteristics to the table that could make him a force at heavyweight," Rebney said. "Brock Lesnar's dominance in the UFC has shown the impact that an elite, world-class wrestler can have in the heavyweight division. As a two-time NCAA heavyweight champion who is aggressively rounding out his MMA arsenal, Cole’s potential is unlimited. We are happy to be teaming up with him and, as a company, we are excited with what the future may hold."

Konrad made his MMA debut in January and earned a first-round submission victory.

Bellator's second season airs live on FOX Sports Net affiliates on Thursday nights, and highlights packages air on NBC and Telemundo the following Saturdays. Both the second and third seasons take place this year and run for 12 weeks each.

Haha, true. The strikers just kinda happen.

Junior Dos Santos is probably one of the best strikers in the HW division and no one knew about the guy until he KTFO Werdum.

"Oh yeah Werdum is a dark horse man, he's gonna get a title shot right after he deals with this ca- OH SHIT!"

"Hey guys, Junior Dos Santos can fight!
