Bellator signs UFC vet Brian Foster

Brian Foster (18-5 MMA, 0-0 BFC) is headed to Bellator Fighting Championships' competitive welterweight division.

Officials today announced the signing, thought terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"I'm getting that belt," Foster stated. "I want to fight the best. I want to fight (champ) Ben Askren and take home that belt.

"I ran through my last two opponents, and I'm better than I've ever been. I'm very happy to be a part of Bellator, and I'm coming for the top spot."

Although he was in the midst of a 3-1 run in the organization, the UFC surprisingly released Foster earlier this year. The hard-hitting fighter was medically released after a pre-fight medical examine revealed a brain hemorrhage. Foster was cleared shortly after, but the UFC didn't re-sign him.

"I've been seen by two of the best doctors in the state, they've medically cleared me, and I feel great," Foster stated. "I'm looking forward to facing Bellator's best and becoming the next welterweight champion."

Since his UFC release, Foster has picked up a pair of wins outside the organization. On Oct. 1, he scored a first-round submission victory over Jack Mason in a featured Cage Warriors 44 bout. Fourteen days later, he submitted Laverne Clark at CCCW 7. Combined, his two opponents had a 44-26-1 record.

Foster is now 5-1 since late 2009. All 18 of the Fiore MMA fighter's career wins have come via stoppage (nine via submission and nine via knockout).

A debut date or possible tourney entry have not been announced for Foster.

Good signing but hopefully Foster has changed camps from Hughes and the ones out in the sticks. he is physically gifted but needs to tighten up his submission defense.

I know this is old, but it's good news. Foster is an exciting fighter.
