Bantamweight standout Raufeon Stots has signed an exclusive contract with Bellator MMA.
“Very happy to announce that [Raufeon Stots] has inked a long term exclusive deal with [Bellator MMA],” Butler wrote. “Raufeon has long been known as the top bantamweight free agent in the country if not the world and we are happy to make Bellator his home.”
Stots, 30, has lost just once in 13 professional outings. He is currently on a four-bout winning streak that includes a trio of triumphs under the Legacy Fighting Alliance banner. Most recently, Stots outpointed 31-fight veteran Ralph Acosta at LFA 68 on May 31. Stots’ lone defeat was documented on Dana White’s “Lookin for a Fight” show when he was knocked out by current UFC talent Merab Dvalishvili at Ring of Combat 59.
