Bellator signs Hieron for season 4 tournament

Quote:
Jay is a fantastic signing for us at 170 pounds,” Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney said in a release. “Jay is a world-class fighter with serious talent. I can’t wait to see him back on national television competing against other top fighters where he belongs. He is a spectacular addition to our upcoming Season 4 welterweight tournament

Thats a pretty good signing for Bellator. I think Hieron has the best chance out of any other WW in Bellator to beat Ben Askren and his ridiculously good wrestling.

Good pick-up for them. I love the mix of vets, and young guys Bellator brings to the table.

Great signing.

I'm still picking Askren to beat him. He's unbelievably talented.

I agree. He isn't bad, but he doesn't live up to the hype in my opinion.

I think this is a good move for Hieron. Big fish small pond. In the UFC Heiron might break the top 10 but IMO never the top 5. In Bellator Hieron is a big deal and I think it will turn out to be to his advantage.

Hieron is good, but i predict he will have Huerta's fate.

Roger went into this season the same way: big name, with a good background and he didn't deliver, even though he gave us good fights.

I don't see Hieron beating Askren. No way!!!

I agree that Hieron probably won't beat Askren but I do see him winning this tournament. Honestly I think it was a mistake for Strikeforce to let him go. Bellator is going to benefit from this!
