Legacy Fighting Alliance welterweight champion Jaleel Willis has signed an exclusive, multi-fight contract with Bellator MMA.
The California-based promotion confirmed the deal following an initial report from MMAjunkie.com on Sunday. A date and opponent for Willis’ second Bellator appearance were not revealed. The Memphis Judo and Jiu-Jitsu product previously competed for the organization in 2016, when he outpointed Omar Johnson at Bellator 162.
The 28-year-old Willis claimed welterweight gold with a five-round verdict against Vinicius de Jesus at LFA 88 on Aug. 21. Willis owns a 13-2 professional mark overall and has earned five of his victories by KO/TKO and eight via decision.
