The explosive HIT Squad welterweight and UFC veteran Brian Foster (16-5) has signed with Bellator Fighting Championships after a 3-2 journey within the UFC that saw him face the likes of “Lights Out” Chris Ltyle (31-18), “The Immortal” Matt Brown (12-10), and “The Horror” Rick Story (11-3). Foster adds a lot of finishing power to the Bellator 170lbs. ranks, with eight wins by TKO and eight wins by submission, and if that doesn’t capture the attention of Bellator fans, the fact that he has never gone the distance and has been out of the first round only five times in his 21-fight career.
Coming into Bellator, Foster has one goal on his mind: to enter in the next tournament, fight his way through whoever is in front of him, and take the belt from welterweight champion Ben Askren (9-0). Foster will likely be not only one of the most experienced fighters in the promotion’s welterweight division but also the most lethal when it comes to his finishing abilities. His first fight has yet to be announced, but the Granite City, Illinois native is eager to get in the cage and do some damage. “I ran through my last two opponents and I’m better than I’ve ever been. I’m very happy to be a part of Bellator and I’m coming for the top spot,” said Foster, and with his recent tear in the UFC ending with two dominant wins, it doesn’t appear much can stop him from getting there.
