After an almost relentless round of signings, which appear to be happening at a unprecedented rate, Bellator are showing no signs of slowing down. In all the promotion has snapped up near enough 40 of Europe’s available and in many cases sought after names. It seemed only right to, in list form as this seems to be something that goes down well here, highlight names that Bellator have either missed or are possibly waiting for existing contracts held by promotions to expire.
He may have dropped a loss to Terry Brazier in his last outing but it’s undeniable that McKee is one of Ireland’s hottest talents. The ‘Next Generation’ standout is a crowd favourite and brings with him a vocal following. Tenacious precision striking and a relentless come forward style McKee would be a welcome addition to Bellator’s roster. With Brazier also signed to the promotion too it surely would be an oversight not to book an rematch down the line given how their last clash played out.
No stranger to the Bellator cage he’s been there done that and will no doubt have given the top brass more than enough reason to pay him what he is due. After leaving no doubt in Scott Coker’s mind he is a finisher he undoubtedly will be among the next wave signed later this year. It’s been a while since we’ve seen ‘The Assassin’ in action but joining Bellator’s roster would be a smart move for the unbeaten striker, allowing him to forge his own path away from his older brother who is currently enjoying success in the UFC’s Octagon.
For a while he was an ACB mainstay where he enjoyed mixed fortunes dropping two losses in his last two outings with the promotion. He’s shown a promising streak in the past and he possesses a decent 17 win, 5 loss record. Max always seems to look fight ready and with a one fight deal with Europe’s stand out promotion, KSW, on the horizon I imagine it won’t be long after the dust has settled on October 6th that he’ll be signed.
One man who hasn’t sat on his laurels whilst ACB decide how he will feature in their plans going forward is Mousah. The savvy businessman has been using his time wisely growing his clothing brand BADR Sports into a threat that’ll make a play for the apparel arena. Those close to him will attest one thing he is very competitive and likes to fight. Up until his last clash, in which he lost a very close decision to Robert Whiteford, Mousah was proving himself to be a formidable athlete. A position which he’ll be keen to take up if the offer is right from Bellator.
Signing Loughnane would arguably be Bellator’s jewel in the crown. Loughnane’s heart is unquestionable having come back from a broken arm sustained in his last bout to land a head kick KO Loughnane is entertainment personified. Not at all shy to take on all comers the biggest problem Bellator will have on signing Loughnane is convincing opponents to also sign their bout agreements.
