Default FOSTER SIGNS WITH BELLATOR

Brian Foster (18-5 MMA, 0-0 BFC) is headed to Bellator Fighting Championships' competitive welterweight division.

Officials today announced the signing, thought terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"I'm getting that belt," Foster stated. "I want to fight the best. I want to fight (champ) Ben Askren and take home that belt.

"I ran through my last two opponents, and I'm better than I've ever been. I'm very happy to be a part of Bellator, and I'm coming for the top spot."

Although he was in the midst of a 3-1 run in the organization, the UFC surprisingly released Foster earlier this year. The hard-hitting fighter was medically released after a pre-fight medical examine revealed a brain hemorrhage. Foster was cleared shortly after, but the UFC didn't re-sign him.

"I've been seen by two of the best doctors in the state, they've medically cleared me, and I feel great," Foster stated. "I'm looking forward to facing Bellator's best and becoming the next welterweight champion."

Since his UFC release, Foster has picked up a pair of wins outside the organization. On Oct. 1, he scored a first-round submission victory over Jack Mason in a featured Cage Warriors 44 bout. Fourteen days later, he submitted Laverne Clark at

i think this is great. brian is certainly ufc caliber. but in the long run i think it can be really good for him to be a big fish in the small pond that appears to be bellator. just look at nick diaz's rise in the ranks while he was in sf. i can definitely see him running over some ww's in bellator and getting some good experience and exposure.

war foster !!!

I agree! I would love to see him make a run at the Bellator belt!

Totally agree with both you guys. I'm glad to see he signed on with them, he will get the fights he needs and the publicity and be back with the UFC in short order!
