Ares Fighting Championship has bolstered its roster with the addition of former Bellator MMA lightweight king Will Brooks.
Brooks experienced his greatest success in Bellator, where he captured the 155-pound belt and defended it three times before signing with the UFC. “Ill Will” went 1-3 in the Octagon before a brief stint with Professional Fighters League during its 2018 season. Most recently, Brooks suffered a submission loss to Gleison Tibau at Battlefield FC 2 on July 27.
The 33-year-old fighter also participated in a tryout for World Wrestling Entertainment this past December.
Ares FC 2, originally slated for Brussels, Belgium on April 2, has been rescheduled for Oct. 30.
