It has become common for Scott Coker and Bellator to sign talents dismissed by the UFC. The list goes on and on with some high-caliber names such as Tito Ortiz, ‘Rampage’ Jackson, Joe Riggs, Chael Sonnen, Wanderlei Silva and others.
Bellator has evolved from just picking up the scraps to now actually luring fighters away as they are about to become free agents. Names like former UFC champion Benson Henderson, Rory MacDonald, Matt Mitrione, Phil Davis and more recently Ryan Bader have decided to explore the market and take their talent to the competition as free agents.
With the recent trend in the UFC there have been cuts almost on a weekly basis which opens the doors to more talent making the transition to Bellator to continue their careers. According to reports arising this week, Scott Coker himself has begun conversations with who he openly admits has become his next target.
