Norman Parke Signs Multi-Fight Contract For Bellator MMA
Lightweight Norman Parke has joined Bellator MMA.
Rumours surfaced earlier this week that Parke was in talks with the promotion and that he was on the verge of signing an exclusive deal.
Sources close to MMANytt.com have informed us that Norman Parke has indeed signed a multi-fight contract with Bellator MMA and is expected to make his debut for the promotion later this year.
Parke (25-6-1) is coming off the back of two wins against Lukasz Chlewicki at KSW 43 and then Myles Price last month at Brave CF 13. Since leaving the UFC, Parke fought Mateusz Gamrot twice for the KSW lightweight championship and has recorded victories in BAMMA, ACB and Brave CF.
The Northern Irishman now becomes the latest big name to join an already stacked 155-pounds in Bellator MMA where Brent Primus currently reigns as the champion.
With the likes of Benson Henderson, Patricky Freire, Brandon Girtz, Josh Thomson and Goiti Yamauchi all fighting in Bellator MMA, there seem to be no end of possibilities for Parke’s promotional debut.
More details are expected to follow shortly.
