Cosmo Alexender to debut for Bellator!

Niiice! Apparently, he's going by the surname Alexander now, and not Alexandre...

edit - probably belongs in the Bellator section, eh...

Bellator Fighting Championships has inked world kickboxing champion Cosmo Alexander to its lightweight division, officials today announced.

The fighter will debut for the promotion on Oct. 1 at Bellator 52 in Lake Charles, La., though an opponent has not been set.

Terms of his deal were not disclosed.

"The decision to make Cosmo the latest addition to the Bellator lightweight division was an easy one," Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney stated. "His striking is simply on another level and will give anyone at 155 pounds serious problems. I can't wait to see Cosmo's progression in the sport under the Bellator banner."

Although he's never competed in MMA, Alexander has racked up a 40-14 pro-kickboxing record (and 2-1 pro-boxing record) while winning WMC intercontinental and WPMF world kickboxing titles.

Now training at Imperial Athletics with likes of Rashad Evans and kickboxer/potential MMA import Tyrone Spong, Alexander has promised an exciting fight style.

"I'm coming to Bellator to put together some devastating knockouts," he stated. "I want to knock my opponents out with head kicks, elbows and knees in the clinch. I can submit guys now, and I'm definitely prepared to fight on the ground, but I'm definitely going to be looking for the knockout when I step inside that Bellator cage."
