04:12 PM ET 05.21 | Matt Riddle is headed to Bellator after the organization bought out his contract from Legacy Fighting Championship. The former UFC fighter will compete in the Season 9 welterweight tournament. "Matt's got all the tools to be a force in our welterweight division," Bellator Chairman and CEO Bjorn Rebney stated. "When I saw Matt get released from the UFC coming off four straight wins including his dominant win over Mills in February, we took notice. We both realize that Matt will have a target on his back for his past indiscretions. But having discussed it with him, I'm comfortable that he's in the right place to enter the Bellator cage this fall in what will be the most loaded Bellator welterweight tournament in the promotion's history."
