Las Vegas-based MMA promotion World Series of Fighting announced Thursday that it has signed veteran Paul Bradley to an exclusive, multi-fight contract.
Bradley, a 31-fight veteran who made his first big-show appearance in Strikeforce, was a contestant on “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 7 and eventually made his way into the UFC, though he was 0-2 in the Octagon. “The Gentleman” was later signed by Bellator MMA, where he posted a 3-1 record with one no contest with the California-based promotion.
Most recently, Bradley, who was a two-time All-American wrestler at the University of Iowa, took out Chris Honeycutt in just 40 seconds at Bellator 148. It remains the sole loss on Honeycutt’s professional ledger.
“We are excited to welcome aboard Paul Bradley, and look forward to having him test his skills in our highly competitive welterweight division,” said World Series of Fighting President Ray Sefo. “Paul has fought and triumphed over some top caliber opposition during his 10-year career, so we are confident that he will be a great addition to our roster.”
Exact details of the agreement were not revealed, but the date of his promotional debut is expected to be announced soon.
