Former GLORY Champion Signs With Bellator

Scott Coker has brought in another world class kickboxer to bolster the roster of Bellator MMA, as former GLORY featherweight champion Robin van Roosmalen has signed with the Viacom owned organization.

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.
