Feeble two-time UFC title challenger Liz Carmouche has joined the Bellator roster.
Firm president Scott Coker on Friday printed to MMA Junkie in some unspecified time in the future of a media scrum in Hawaii that Carmouche (13-7 MM, 0-0 BMMA) has signed an unfamiliar contract with Bellator following her launch from the UFC this month.
A date and opponent for Carmouche’s debut luxuriate in but to be presented. On the opposite hand, Coker talked a few girls’s flyweight tournament is potentially in the plans for 2020, and Carmouche may well possibly well possibly be a candidate to fit into the discipline.
“We’re persevering with to develop out 125-pound weight class division,” Coker talked about. “Don’t be greatly surprised next year if that is our feminine tournament. A small of breaking records we finest signed Liz Carmouche this day. I had a gathering with her the day gone by. We sat down, make a deal and he or she signed it this morning and we’ll instruct it on the printed this day. But Liz is singed. She will be able to now be battling in Bellator. It’s going to be every other nice asset to our 125-pound weight class.”
Carmouche, who fought for UFC titles at 125 and 135 kilos, had her nearly seven-year octagon tenure come to an unceremonious waste. She modified into told of her UFC launch while doing promotional actions at UFC on ESPN 7 in Washington D.C.
After the records got here out, Carmouche’s magnificent buddy and longtime practicing companion Ilima-Lei Macfarlane, Bellator’s flyweight champion, told MMA Junkie she hopes Carmouche joins her below the Bellator banner.
Now she gets her desire.
