Bellator MMA has signed Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Myles Jury.
ESPN was first to report the news. He is expected to debut later this year, with an opponent to be determined.
Jury (17-4) is currently on a two-fight losing streak where he dropped a decision to Andre Fili and was knocked out by Chad Mendes. The 30-year-old went 8-4 inside the Octagon, splitting time at lightweight and featherweight. He also has notable wins over the likes of Diego Sanchez, Michael Johnson and Takanori Gomi.
In Bellator, "Fury" will move up to lightweight. At 155 pounds in the UFC, Jury fared much better to a record of 6-1. His lone came against Donald Cerrone, who went on to fight for the lightweight title later that year.
