In a move announced on Tuesday, the 29-year-old former featherweight and lightweight champion for GLORY signed a deal with Coker and Bellator MMA, potentially to compete in the upcoming 16-man featherweight grand prix.
van Roosmalen has fought twice under MMA rules in 2016 and 17, winning both time by stoppage, and has not competed for GLORY since a loss at GLORY 59 in September of 2018.
van Roosmalen may be competing for a vacant featherweight title, as current featherweight/lightweight champion Patricio Freire has not confirmed his participation in the tournament set to start in October.
