Bellator President Scott Coker today informed MMAjunkie that Bader will today accept a multi-fight contract deal with the Viacom-owned promotion, ending a period of free agency after fighting out his UFC contract.
This past month, UFC President Dana White indicated he wouldn’t push to keep Bader in the fold.
“We had told Ryan Bader he was good to go,” White said. “We knew he was going to go to Bellator the entire time. I think Bellator is a good place for Ryan Bader. At this point in his career, I think it’s the right move for him.”
